Meta. True spiritual inspiration and understanding; spiritual vision; a clear insight into Truth, into the things of God, the things that are eternal. This understanding is needed by man in every avenue of his being, in every faculty and power. It comes to him when he makes the securing of this highest understanding the most vital thing in his life, when he gives his most earnest attention to Spirit. Proverbs 3:13-18 reveals the value of understanding and the earnestness with which it should be sought. The 15th verse reads:"She is more precious than rubies:And none of the things thou canst desire are to be compared unto her."
