The Crystal Tablet – verses 37 – 52

How shall the soul attain to love? Let her open herself to every creature in compassion and in care. Let her seek to do no harm to any being. Let her love extend even to those who do her hurt; and let her seek to understand them. For perfect love is perfect knowledge and perfect knowledge is perfect love.
Let her know that no creature gains good for herself by any harmful act, for every stone returns to she that throws it in the fullness of time; and the shaft that her hand releases shall fly a thousand years until it cleaves her heart. But she that does a kindly action shall be thrice blessed: Once in the doing of it; for the hand of Thea shall rest upon her. Once in the raising of her soul upon the path toward her Lady. And once in the deed itself; for every rose plucked and sent forth shall come as a gift to her when her heart is weary, and every cup of wine that she gives to another shall quench the thirst of her own lips in the fullness of time.
She who gives succour to those who have need prepares a place of safe repose for her soul. And she who turns no creature away surrounds her soul with beautiful things. For the soul that grows in love grows ever more beautiful, but the soul that turns from love is repellent of aspect. Let the soul know before all that the greatest love is the love of Thea, and from this love all other loves flow. Let her open herself to her Lady that She may come as a perfect love for her. Let her learn of Thea, of that eternal love which is Thea. And she who loves her Lady in perfection shall have perfect love of all Her creatures, even as She has. For this is the love that is perfect knowledge, and the knowledge that is perfect love.


The above are the last verses of the The Crystal Tablet. As the reader can see it is a short but powerful writing. I will let it to speak for itself.
