Hope and Faith, Spirtuality-Belief, Veneration, Benevolence-Kindness, Constructive Ability and Sense of the Beautiful.

HOPE AND FAITH
We are compelled to move onward into the future, and this quality of hope lights up our pathway.  Hope is the inspiring element of this life, and it also leaps beyond, and hopes to live for ever.

SPIRITUALITY – BELIEF
We are spiritual, as well as natural beings, and this quality of spirituality fits us to receive spirit influences.  It discerns spiritual truths.  It looks across the valley, and sees a life beyond the grave.

VENERATION
Human beings always did, and always will, venerate and worship something.  This quality of veneration accounts for it.  And when it finds God it loves to worship Him.

BENEVOLENCE – KINDNESS
The principle of giving and receiving is universal, and essential to human existence.  Hence we have the quality of benevolence, giving us humanity, self-denial, charity, and universal loving-kindness.

CONSTRUCTIVE ABILITY
This faculty is the principle worker in the mechanical arts.  It relates us to the building-up process going on everywhere.  The domestic nature calls for a home; constructiveness builds it.

SENSE OF THE BEAUTIFUL
This quality gives us a love for the beautiful, everywhere in nature, in art, in poetry, and in people.  The world is full of beauty, therefore we are made to enjoy it.
