of God; this grace is the treasurer of paradise, who
is Razvan, " the porter of heaven;" but doubt and
perturbation are the leaders to misfortune and to
disdain; and disdain is the treasurer of hell, who is
called Malik, " the keeper of hell."
AN ACCOUNT OF MOUNTAINS AND SEAS, AND OF WHAT
OCCURS UPON THE EARTH OF THE LAST JUDGMENT.
It should be known, that a mountain can be the
emblem of a body, which is as overgrown with wool,
and the seas can signify the elements; or it may be
proper to call the mountains " elements, which are
** opaque/' and the seas " the skies/' Besides,
from a mountain, bodies can be desired; as it may
be the station of angels, and from the sea angels
proceed. Attempting to investigate the nature of
God we meet with a veil, and this veil is darkness.
The only light we find is, that whoever travels over
the stages of materiality and spirituality, attains
rest in the seat of purity,
" Near the mighty King."
The veils of darkness are like colored wool raised up.
" The mountains shall become like carded >vool of various colors
44 driven by the wind." *
