go out into a being. This will is the life of the
original will, and proceeds out of the pregnation,

essentially, and thus obtains an essential spirit.
There, every essence is an arcanum or a mysteriurn
of an entire being, and is thus a comprehension as
an unfathomable wonder of eternity; for many
lives without number are generated, and yet all
is together but one being.
7. The threefold Spirit without being is its master
and possessor; and yet it possesses not the Nature-
being, for it (the Spirit) dwells in itself.
8. The Word is its centre or seat, and is in the
midst as a heart; and the spirit of the Word, which
takes its origin in the primal eternal will, reveals
the wonders of the essential life. There are, then,
two mysteries : one in the spirit-life, and one in
the essential life. The spirit-life is acknowledged
as God, and is rightly so called; and the essential
life is acknowledged as the Nature-life, which would
have no understanding if the Spirit or the spirit-
life were not desirous. In this desire the divine
Being, as the eternal word or heart of God, is
continually and from eternity generated; from
which the desiring will as Spirit eternally goes out
into the Nature-life, and reveals therein the
mystery in essences. So that there are two lives
