Chapter 12
Why it is my bounden duty to speak
It is thus obvious that there are times when a person by keeping silent may give rise to disastrous situations. Consequently he must perforce speak his mind, even though this may jar on the ears of the uninitiated and be taken for "arrogance", "egotism", or "self-glorification". Anyone having experienced the revelation of the Holy Spirit will, more or less, find himself in such a situation. And as I have had this very experience, I am bound to say so, even at the risk of being misunderstood. In spite of this risk, accordingly, I feel that the events, which to me are absolute facts, are of a nature so significant and of such a cogency that I find myself more in contact with the divine purpose and the meaning of life by speaking up rather than otherwise, no matter what the uninitiated critic may think of it, and what vexation the misconception on the part of the majority may incur; for does it not say "fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul"? On this basis I am now going to relate a little of what enabled me to draw up an analysis of the world through which the eternal world picture – with its great answers or immortal sentences from the Bible, from the Earth's greatest sages – add up to a mathematical unit, thereby transposing the greatest truths of life into science, art and love.
