  1. The soul of man is the Eternal. It is made of consciousness, it
    is made of feeling, it is made of life, it is made of vision, it is
    made of hearing; it is made of the earth, it is made of the waters,
    it is made of the air, it is made of the ether, it is made of the
    radiance and what is beyond the radiance; it is made of desire and
    what is beyond desire, it is made of wrath and what is beyond wrath,
    it is made of the law and what is beyond the law; it is made of the
    All. The soul is made of this world and of the other world….
    As they said of old: Man verily is formed of desire; as his
    desire is, so is his will; as his will is, so he works; and whatever
    work he does, in the likeness of it he grows.
