”The earth supplies all the things that man’s nature demands except one, and that is his source; and therefore man remains dissatisfied all through life in spite of everything that he may obtain in answer to his desires: pleasure, comfort, rank, or wealth. He may obtain them all, but still the longing of his soul will remain because it is for home.
Home is the source, which the wise have called God. … The innermost being of man is that which may be called the source itself, and the outer being of man is what we call ‘man.’
The limited part of man’s being is the creation, and the innermost part of his being is the Creator.
If this is true, then man is both limited and unlimited. If he wishes to be limited he can become more and more limited. If he wishes to be unlimited he can become more and more unlimited.
If he cultivates in himself the illusion of being a creation, he can be that more and more. But if he cultivates in himself the knowledge of the Creator, he can also be that more and more.
The innermost being of man is the real being of God; man is always linked with God.
If he could only realize it, it is by finding harmony in his own soul that he finds communion with God.
All meditation and contemplation are taught with this purpose: to harmonize one’s innermost being with God, so that He is seeing, hearing, thinking through us, and our being is a ray of His light. In that way we are even closer to God than the fishes are to the ocean in which they have their being.”
