In the One, above and below are the same, [just as] beginning and end are one in the circumference of a circle. That which is in conflict is also in concert; while things differ from one another, they are all contained in the most beautiful Unity.

This ordered universe, which is the same for all, was not created by any one of the gods or by man, but always was, is, and shall be, an ever-living Flame that is first kindled and then quenched in turn. [The universe bursts forth and then is reabsorbed, yet its Source is ever-living, like a Sun that never sets] and who can hide from that which never sets? [That eternal Intelligence in man] is forever beyond change;

The best of men choose to know the One above all else;
It is the famous "Eternal" within mortal men.
But the majority of men are complacent, like well-fed cattle. They revel in mud; like donkeys, they prefer chaff to gold.

You could not in your travels find the source or destination of the soul, so deeply hidden is the Logos.
[But] I searched for It [and found It] within myself.
That hidden Unity is beyond what is visible.
All men have this capacity of knowing themselves, [for] the soul has the Logos within it, which can be known when the soul is evolved.
What is within us remains the same eternally;
It is the same in life and death, waking and sleeping, youth and old age; for, It has become this world, and the world must return to It.

Without It, the fairest universe is but a randomly scattered dust-heap. If we are to speak with intelligence, we must found our being on that which is common to all... For that Logos which governs man is born of the One, which is Divine. It [the Divine] governs the universe by Its will, and is more than sufficient to everyone.

Though men are inseparable from the Logos, yet they are separated in it; and though they encounter it daily, they are alienated from it

Everyone is ruled by the Logos, which is common to all; yet, though the Logos is universal, the majority of men live as if they had an identity peculiar to themselves.
