The primordial and eternal mission of mankind is to cultivate and maintain the “garden”, i.e. the world in a state of equilibrium and cooperation between Spirit and Nature!  It is not necessary either to do or to leave alone; either to build systems of thought, or let all thought pass through the head without control.

It is necessary to work, and to allow growth; to think, and to await the growth and ripening of the thought; and it is necessary for the magical word to be accompanied by the magical silence.  In a word, it is necessary to cultivate and maintain!
