In this wonderful lecture we are told about the purpose of Truth. To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of prison doors to them that are bound. “The captives” are those people who are bound by the chain of false beliefs, error, and superstitions. Man creates his own hell and his own heaven by his beliefs about himself, people, and the world in general. He blames the world, circumstances, people and conditions for his hard luck, misfortune, and sickness. When he sees the Truth, he is set free, because he realizes he is master of his own destiny and captain of his fate. Man becomes that which he contemplates; his thought and feeling control his destiny.
