He who knows the Ultimate Reality sees himself in God and sees all in God – The Message of The East



When we have subdued our passions and freed ourselves from all doubts and prejudice, the light of Truth will burst on our hearts in all its divine effulgence and purity.

He who knows the Ultimate Reality, after having become quiet, subdued, satisfied, patient and collected, sees himself in God, sees all in God.

Evil does not overcome him, he overcomes all evil.

Free from evil, free from stain, free from doubt, he becomes a true God-knower.

He then penetrates into the illimitable realm of truth and realizes the supreme fact that to know God is not only possible for the spirit of man, but is its consummation and eternal life.

The sphere of religion then becomes, to quote the lofty words of Hegel: “A region in which the spirit rids itself of its finiteness and relates itself to that which is unlimited and infinite; where its attitude is no longer that of dependence but of freedom; and where the individual has no longer to do with himself, his interest, his vanity but only with absolute truth. All anxiety and doubt, all petty cares and troubles, all narrow and selfish interest, are left behind on the sandbank of time. In this pure region we penetrate beyond the outward deceitful shows and semblances of the world and behold all things revealed to us, transfigured in the pure light of truth and softened in its halo of enternal rest and peace.
