Three Rivers

 By Marjorie B. Umbenhour, F. R. C.
 
[From The Rosicrucian Digest February 1946]
 
 
GOD dreamed and from out the dream of God flowed three rivers. God poured Himself into His rivers and the torrents rushed toward the children of God.
 
Again God dreamed and the rivers encompassed His children and flowed into the hearts of a few of them. Then God said, "My rivers shall be called the River of Life, the River of Light, and the River of Love. And some of my children will throw themselves into my waters and immerse themselves in my being. They will swim, mighty and strong, with the current of my waters, and reach the great joining of the rivers. At this union of the Rivers of Life and Light and Love, the name will be Peace Profound. This Peace will be attained through willingness and the desire for atonement with me.
 
"Yet, other of my children will ever swim against the currents and against the tide of my desire. To these I shall give a word that they may learn the meaning thereof. For the chimera of the world and of self will hold their attention through their many returns to the school of reality; until, after lives untold, they will learn and know the tender meaning of the word.
 
"And through their knowing they will throw themselves into my waters and immerse themselves in my being. Through the expression of my word they will swim, mighty and strong, with the current of my waters, and reach the great joining of the rivers--the union of the streams of Life and Light and Love which is named Peace Profound. And these, my wayward children, will have attained this Peace through the meaning of the word--Service."
