“…we must not forget that the human soul, however independently our philosophy represents it as being, is inseparable, in tis birth and in its death, from the universe into which it is born….it is we, who, through our own activity, must industriously assemble the widely scattered elements…Thus, every man, in the course of his life, must only show himself obedient and docile.  By his fidelity he must build…a work, an opus, into which something enters from all the elements of the earth.  HE MAKES HIS OWN SOUL throughout his earthly days.”

-The Divine Milieu
