Welcome!


You Are All Of That All


At the very core of the great religious traditions – overlaid, neglected, very often vehemently denied by religious experts, but nevertheless the taproot those traditions spring from and are sustained by – is one perfectly lucid, simple, awesome, beautiful realization. It’s a proclamation which deserves all the trumpets and bells of Heaven and Earth, and it’s about you personally. Personally. It is this: that, more intimately yours than all else, ‘closer (as Tennyson put it so accurately) than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet’, is the One you really, really are, the Self of yourself, the Self and Source and Substance of all selves, the Alone. No mere spark are you of that Eternal Fire. No mere ray of the One Light that lights every man and woman and child that the world comes into. Not a part of the Whole which (to quote Dante) ‘gathers up the scattered leaves of all the universe and binds them by love into one volume’, but that Volume itself. You are all of that All which is strictly indivisible. Repeat: indivisible. (Head Off Stress, Douglas Harding.)

He who penetrates into himself, and so transcends himself, ascends truly to God. Albertus Magnus

You should know (God) without image, unmediated and without likeness. But if I am to know God without mediation in such a way, then "I" must become "he", and "he" must become "I". More precisely I say: God must become me and I must become God, so entirely one that "he" and this "I" become one "is" and act in this "isness" as one, for this "he" and this "I", that is God and the soul, are very fruitful as we eternally do one work. Meister Eckhart
