|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from The Profits of Religion by Upton Sinclair:
explicit in many of its creeds. In the Litany the people petition
for increase of grace to hear meekly Thy Word"; and here is this
"Word," as little children are made to learn it by heart. If
there exists in the world a more perfect summary of slave ethics,
I do not know where to find it.
My duty towards my neighbour is.....
To honour and obey the King, and all that are put in authority
To submit myself to all my governours, teachers, spiritual
pastors, and masters:
To order myself lowly and reverently to all my betters ....
|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from King James Bible:

saying, Israel shall be thy name:
KI1 18:32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the
LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain

KI1 18:34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the
second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the

works and impeded the proper action of the currents. Had you gone to
a civilized country such an accident could not have happened; but to
avoid possible trouble in the future I have prepared a new instrument,
having a stronger case, which I will exchange for the one you now have."
"That's very kind of you," said Rob, eagerly handing his battered
machine to the Demon and receiving the new one in return. "Are you
sure this will work?"
"It is impossible for you to injure it," answered the other.
