"A grub or worm working out its little life in a mass of decaying substance is as much a spiritual manifestation as an initiate working out his destiny in a mass of rapidly changing human forms. It is all manifested Deity; it is all divine expression and all a form of sensitive awareness and of response to environment."
Esoteric Psychology I
(Alice A. Bailey)
"It seems the Divine Mind uses forms as a painter uses his canvas – to embody the rich imaginative potential of mind."

The Book of Catholic Quotations
(John Chapin, Editor)

The Masks of God
"In the beginning was God, today is God. Tomorrow will be God. Who can make an image of God? He has no body. He is as a word which comes out of your mouth. That word! It is no more, it is past, and still it lives! So is God." Pygmy creation myth
God, A Companion for Seekers
"It is psychologically quite unthinkable for God to be simply the 'wholly other', for a 'wholly other' could never be one of the soul's deepest and closest intimacies – which is precisely what God is." 'Psychology and Alchemy'
"God is one with all the trees and flowers and weeds that grow along the roadside. God is one with the great mountains of the world and with each tiny grain of sand….God is one with the world and with each thing and person in it."
