acquiescence is only the basis. Man is the instrument of an

              evolution which wears at first the mask of a struggle, but
              grows more and more into its truer and deeper sense of a
              constant wise adjustment and must take on in a rising scale

              the deepest truth and significance — now only underlying
              the  adjustment  and  struggle  —  of  a  universal  harmony.
              The perfected human soul must always be an instrument
