BOOK TWO ---------- BEING

FLASH TWO: EXISTENCE

    The word "existence" sometimes means simply the state of being or existing.  Taken in this sense, "existence" is an "idea" which has no external object corresponding with it.

    In this sense "existence" is the real nature of the thing, which exists only in thought.

.....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....

    But sometimes "existence" signifies the Real BEING, who is Self-existent, and on whom the existence of all other beings depends.

    In truth there is no real objective existence besides Him.  All other beings are merely accidents accessory to Him.

    This is attested by the intuitive apprehension of "Men of Certitude".

.....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....

    The word existence is applicable to TRUTH in the latter sense only.

.....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....                    .....

Things that exist to men of narrow view
Appear the accidents to substance due;
To men of light, substance is accident,
Which the "True Being" ever doth renew.
