Página 205 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Página 178 - For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

The Absolute cannot be conceived as conscious, neither can it be conceived as unconscious : it cannot be conceived as complex, neither can it be conceived as simple : it cannot be conceived by difference, neither can it be conceived by the absence of difference : it cannot be identified with the universe, neither can it be distinguished from it.
