The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God as if he stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge.
Words derive their power from the original word.
All God wants of man is a peaceful heart.
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
God expects but one thing of you, and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made and let God be God in you.
When you are thwarted, it is your own attitude that is out of order.
We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity… But if it takes not place in me, what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me.
The eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me.
There exists only the present instant… a Now which always and without end is itself new. There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow, but only Now, as it was a thousand years ago and as it will be a thousand years hence.
God is at home, it’s we who have gone out for a walk.
