Prove it for yourself

As St Paul says, Prove all things and hold fast that which is good. In other words, we are not like wandering atoms in space with no guidance, no power of grasping and understanding Truth, but we have been put here with all the powers of the universe touching us and manifesting through us. We have been created with a perfect receiving apparatus by which we can not only receive the great radio-dispensing of Divine Wisdom and Truth but can separate it and judge it. For we have had written for us in an unmistakable way the great Book of Nature. We are told from the beginning that only those things we see worked out in Nature are and can be truths, and that man is the microcosm of the macrocosm and hence must follow the same laws. And if he does he will find the same satisfactory results. Therefore, we can only say to you that nothing is true to you, be it ever so true to others unless you can prove it for yourself; unless you can see its corresponding accomplishment worked out for you in the Cosmos and can prove it from the laws of Nature or your own experience.
