Excerpt from The Success of Failure

When Writing "The Success of Failure," in 1911 and 1912, its author did not contemplate the difficulty that would arise in the understanding of this book, so many of its readers not getting beyond the surface, the substance, abiding in the allegorical, not being perceived.

While those who have read it, declare it to be an interesting and beautiful book, they betray, in stating their conclusions, no evidence of an appreciation of that knowledge wherein lay the success of failure, its greater beauty, clothed in an instruction which it endeavors to impart, escaping them.

Therefore, its author has decided to review the book.

A grieving night greets us in the First Chapter. Shadow and tears in enfoldment, in which we behold incarceration and solitary confinement, witnessed in an abode of clay, Man's habitat of earth.

Obscured by the downcast of the heavens, our vision permits us not to behold in all verity the presence of the prisoner, domiciled in the decreed of the "Thou Shalt Not" and the circumscribed of the "So Far, And No Farther," nor to perceive in that ruling the Lord-God, Lawful Authority in the realm of Being.

The surrounding darkness of night also renders us oblivious to the sovereignty that abides within those citadels of correction, causing a wilderness of thought, in which the Mind of Good is not invoked, and a slavery to false perceptions is founded, through which no light peers, a blackness of lost hope blanketing All, from which suicidal dementia and the performances thereof are born.

That All shall not be lost, we are permitted to witness unto the Hand of Interposition, as it presents itself between the would-be suicide and the accomplishment thereof. And it is with awe that we make its acquaintance, believing it to be what it is not, failure of fulfillment.
