Of Creeds, and Beliefs, debate with
It widens out the breach unto defeat
Hasn't God got enough of trouble
on His hands. Hasn He got His
hands full. Can't YOU lend Him a
hand and help to turn this earth,
your earth, into a Paradise, a Para

true being. From the unreal lead me
unto the Real and unveil the magic
Illusions of the phenomenal
that I may see the Paths unto Real
Next with a Turkish towel, rub
body thoroughly from head to foot,

keep brain and body balanced and
bring more helpful and practical help
to yourself than all your theologians.
Don't disgrace yourself or YOUR
GOD by expressing on your face,
meanness, ugliness, disease, darkness
and death. Become a better man, a
better woman and show on your face
beauty, health, love, happiness and
life. Life is short at best get the

mind down to it don't have me come
back next month and give you the
