Meta. A springing forth of Truth (light and joy) into consciousness (bursting forth of joy, the early dawn). The Truth, while it has always existed in the face, or light, of God, is ever new. To the soul that receives it, it is the first-born, or first fruits, of renewed life (new, resurrecting thoughts and conditions). This renewal of life brings great rejoicing to the individual and brings about his release from Babylon (confusion) .
