THE FIRST POINT 87 possesses only the life of the third principle, both its spirit and body are only this. And all that moves in this world, and man by his spirit and visible body in flesh and blood, is also only the fruit of this same essence, and nothing else at all. 54. But seeing he has in himself also the two inward worlds (which give him the right under- standing, discernment and disposition ; which also during this time of the earthly and elemental body are in conflict with one another), let him therefore take heed; the world that he makes lord in him, the same will eternally be lord in him. During this time he can break, and no farther. When the outward breaks, then all stands in its aether. The soul is free, and is the punctum, and has the understanding; it may incline whither it will, and may support which principle it pleases; the aether into which it enters, there it is eternally. 55. And thus we understand the foundation of the three principles (like as the tongue of the beam of a balance); what God and eternity is and is able to do, and what growth each principle gives from itself, from its property, and how we are to investi- gate the ground of Nature. Thus the first part or point is completed.
