INSTRUCTIONS OF UNITY
1. The gifts of the understanding are greatly valued in the eyes of God; and He appoints to everyone his portion, in what he as well measures to be good unto Himself.
2. Has God furnished you with wisdom? Has He enlightened your mind with the knowledge of truth? Communicate it to the ignorant, for their instruction; communicate it to the wise, you will find there will be improvement upon yourself.
3. True wisdom is less followed on than is foolishness. The wise man doubts often, and has change in his mind; the fool is stubbornly adhering to one’s purpose, he agrees with everything and doubts nothing; he states that he knows all things, but his own ignorance.
4. Having so much pride to the point where you are in denial of your own lack of, is shameful; and to talk much, is the foolishness of the fool; nevertheless, it is the part of wisdom to hear with patience their absurdity, and to pity their senselessness.
5. Do not be stuck up in your own fancy, neither should you boast of superior understanding; the clearest human knowledge is but blindness and foolishness.
6. The wise man has knowledge of his own flaws, and he is humbled; he works on his own vanity for his own approval but the fool peeps from the shadow stream of his own mind, and is pleased with the pebbles which he see at the bottom; he brings these pebbles up into the light to show them as pearls and with desires an applause for his own satisfaction.
7. Do not be too proud to be of aid to another, to not be so vein to where you feel as if you are better than the person who may have a lack of pride.
8. Accept the hand of another, accept the smile of a stranger, and return the favor with honest giving of appreciation. For when people can come together, bond their ideas, with either brotherly or sisterly love for each other, than a “Master Mind” is formed.
9. Cultivate your mind with knowledge; Feed the utility of your knowledge to the public and honor will be received.
10. Allow your fellow folk to know that it is ok to live life without fear, that they can find love without having denial of it or being afraid of the harm which people have said it brings. For when people feel safe to bong with others, destruction decreases; death decreases, pain decreases, hurt decreases, and tears will be no more.
11. Love thy brother as if thy mother birthed him, love thy sister as if she was yours to protect, and love thy neighbor, because although not connected through a line of blood, you are each others family.
