SUMMARY AND REVIEW

This summary, when completed with answers, gives you a comprehension of the
primary points of the chapter in the text.  Fill in the blanks with words or
phrases that complete the ideas.

"As above, so ____________; as below, so _____________." -- _________________

The second great ________________ Principle embodies the idea that there is a
_________________, agreement and ____________________ between the many fields
(___________) of manifestation, __________ and being.  This is so because all
that is in the universe _____________________ from the same source.  The same
__________, __________________ and characteristics apply to each __________ ,
or ______________ of units of _____________ as each _________________ its own
__________________ in its own field.

Note that as you examine the _______________ of ________________, the rate of
__________________ expresses the ___________ or __________ of that field.  It
is a well known fact of ___________  __________________ that everything is in
______________; everything ___________________; nothing is at rest.  From the
_____________ manifestation to the ___________ , everything and _____________
____________________ vibrate.  Not only do they vibrate at different rates of
____________ but in different ______________ and in ________________ manners.
The _____________ of the __________ of vibration _____________ the degrees of
________________ on the scale in the fields.  These degrees form levels.  The
higher the degree of ____________________ rate, the higher the level, and the
higher the _______________________ of life occupying that level.

The lowest point is _________________________ matter and the highest point is
that of _____________ .  The different _____________ shade into each other so
that no hard and fast division may be made between the ___________________ on
adjoining levels.  The atom of matter, the ____________ of force, the mind of
the ___________, and the being of the _____________ are all but _____________
in one scale.  All are fundamentally the same, the difference depends solely
upon the degree and rate of vibration.  All are creations of _______________,
and have their ___________ solely within the Infinite Mind of ______________.

Many of these ___________, as well as the ____________ host take the greatest
interest in the affairs of the universe and PLAY an important part in its
destiny.  These unseen ______________ and angelic  _____________ extend their
__________ freely and powerfully in the process of __________ and  __________
progress.  Known as the Summa ______________ they have ________________ their
__________________ and _________ upon the _____________, again and again, all
under the Law of _____________, of course.  Their occasional ________________
and assistance in the affairs of ______________ have led to the many legends,
beliefs, __________________ and traditions of the race, past and present.

The Principle of ____________________ manifests in everything, for there is a
_______________, harmony and __________________ between the many levels.  The
Principle of ___________ manifests on all levels.  In fact the very vibratory
composition of matter and energy defines its level or field of existence.
The Principle of _________________ is also operational throughout the cosmos,
the extremes of the opposing points being apparently opposite and
contradictory.  The Principle of _____________ can be seen in the movement of
phenomena having its ebb and flow, rise and fall, incoming and outgoing.
The Principle of ___________ _________ ____________ is constant; every effect
having its inescapable cause and every cause having its effect.  Lastly the
Principle of _____________ manifests on each level, operating along the lines
of its masculine and feminine aspects.
