Chapter 7

Manhood speaks about womanhood

  1. How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.

In accord with Soul’s grace, womanhood is “shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Eph 6:15). Every action is linked to the divine power with scientific care and precision. Like a cunning workman cutting a most precious diamond, womanhood chisels away false beliefs and finds perfect man.

  2. Thy navel is like a round goblet, which wanteth not liquor: thy belly is like an heap of wheat set about with lilies.

From the evidence of the glorious harvest now taking place, everyone and everything is hedged about with Soul’s grace.

  3. Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins.

The motherhood of God eagerly distributes the milk of the Word to the poor: to both the poor suffering hearts and to those who think they are rich and need nothing — the poorest of the poor. Through the simple lessons of the grand giver of Zion we give up our impoverished beliefs.

  4. Thy neck is as a tower of ivory; thine eyes like the fishpools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim: thy nose is as the tower of Lebanon which looketh toward Damascus.

When omnipotent Love is held uppermost in thought, the pure daughter of God gently begins to shine. Even though her heart sees persecutions, she is unfazed. She will not despair — will not stop loving. Hate and fear must disappear before her gaze.

  5. Thine head upon thee is like Carmel, and the hair of thine head like purple; the king is held in the galleries.

The understanding of divine Love bears the fruit which clothes the dominion man in royal colors.

  6. How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!

Finally, we can see how Love reigns, and we can rejoice.

  7. This thy stature is like to a palm tree, and thy breasts to clusters of grapes.

The woman understands the lesson of the grass that lies beneath our feet, humbly covering the earth (feeding and sustaining us), and yearns to tell us its secret. It is selfless humility that lifts us up above envy and hate and enables us to play our part in the spiritual feeding of nations.

  8. I said, I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of the boughs thereof: now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose like apples;

Now that the power of humility is pointed out, let us see what happens if I follow the woman’s lead, take divine Science and eat it up — understand that the Word is Father-Mother Love thinking me.

  9. And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.

There is no question that I will find it sweet as honey in my mouth, a healing salve to my body, but the generosity of Soul will startle the thoughtless with thoughts, give impulse to inquiry, and define omniscience.

The woman speaks to mankind

  10. I am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me.

Finally, mankind is waiting and watching for the rest and drink I have to offer.

  11. Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.

Come with me. Bring divine Love into all fields of usefulness — into science, theology, and medicine — and spiritualize them.

  12. Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.

Let us expect an early harvest. Mankind must be transformed. Tenderness will bud and grace mature until it is understood that God sustains Her idea, first with crumbs of comfort from Christ’s table and then with full reward as sons and daughters of God.

  13. The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.

My transformative presence is obvious to spiritual sense. “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Rev 3:20). “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Rev 22:17). Life, light, is forever free!
