IT seemeth hard to unruly Minds, that God should keep
Intellectual Souls, so strange to the unseen World of
Spirits; that we know so little of them, and that our
Knowledge of them, is no more by the way of sense: But there is in it, much of Gods Arbitrary Soveraign Power,
and much of his Wisdom, and much of his Justice, and also of his Love. 1. It pleased him to make Variety of
Creatures: What harmony would there be without
Variety? were there nothing but Unity there would be nothing but God. And various Creatures, must have a various Scituation, Reception and Operations: The
Fishes must not dwell in our Cities, nor be acquainted with our Affairs. 2. We here dwell in Flesh, in Bodies organized for the Souls Receptions and Perceptions,
and Operations: And the Wisdom of God doth suitably dispose of his Communications, and give us that measure of Light, which is agreeable to our State: The
Sun must not shine on the Infant in the Womb, nor must he there see our Buildings and Tradings, and
Business in the World. 3. We have Light here, that is proportionable to our work and interest: So much as is necessary to our knowing of our selves, and our God and Governour, and our Duty, and all those hopes that are our necessary Motives thereto.

may as certainly know that there is a God, as they can know that there is any Being
