Benevolence. Goodwill

Procopius, the Blessed, Prays for the Unknown Travelers<br>by Nicholas Roerich. 19141. "Good is creative. The Cosmos is being built. And therefore the consciousness acting in goodness acts in harmony with Cosmic Laws. It is as if the very essence of life stands behind him, directing him upward. Precisely, we can say: in goodness we ascend and with goodness we rise." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1956, 26]
