In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

28 From the Curriculum of a Serpent Search your heart for any trespass you might have committed against your neighbor, weighing each slight and peccadillo on the scale of earth beneath you, then remove the ballasts of generous deeds from the mass of your transgressions since they are timid birds in the mind of your neighbor, flying off on the wings of forgetfulness to leave the dead weight of insult behind, tipping the scale beyond its highest number. Try next to guess the number on which the sharp red needle would settle if the numbers went that high. Gaze down then if you can to see how stuck is the needle on the highest number, which is only the partial weight of what you feared was true about the heft of even the smallest hurt on the scale of earth that stretches out before you. deNiord text-2.indd 28 11/10/10 10:40 AM ...
