57. He that is righteous shall be righteous still; he that is filthy shall be filthy still.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

It feels counter-intuitive for me to interpret this verse in the sense of "righteous" and "filthy" as moral categories. I feel the indication is, rather, that each individual star (i.e. point-of-consciousness) has its essential characteristics (properties of its nature) which are not subject to change - for if they were, that would not be the particular individual point-of-consciousness any more, but something else.
