How small the mind of man to comprehend the great,
The Good, the Infinite, the Mind of God;
With what impetuosity he rushes in
To tell how God does this, thinks that, feels so,
All based upon his own mentality so tried:
He separates the acts of God from God himself,
As he distinguished the thinker from the object thought;
Nor does he understand the single basic law
When God conceives, then got the Concept is,
And when he Thinks, the Thinking, Thought and God are one;
When God creates, then God Creation is,
the Will, the Thought, the Act, each one is God Himself;
No time is there when they existed Not,
Just as no time is there when God Himself was not,
No time He will not be, for God is Time,
And yet in Him no Time exists, for God's timelessness.
Michael Dylan (1957)

The Lord is my light and my salvation so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? Old Testament

The Void is that which stands right in the middle of "this" and "that." The void is all inclusive, having no opposite - there is nothing which it excludes or opposes. It is a living void, because all forms come out of it and whoever realizes the void is filled with life and power and the love of all things. Bruce Lee (1940)

Why wait for Heaven? Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. The light is in them now. A Course In Miracles (1975)

In the seen, there is only the seen,
in the heard, there is only the heard,
in the sensed, there is only the sensed,
in the cognized, there is only the cognized.
Thus you should see that
indeed there is no thing here;
this, Bahiya, is how you should train yourself.
Since, Bahiya, there is for you
in the seen, only the seen,
in the heard, only the heard,
in the sensed, only the sensed,
in the cognized, only the cognized,
and you see that there is no thing here,
you will therefore see that
indeed there is no thing there.
As you see that there is no thing there,
you will see that
you are therefore located neither in the world of this,
nor in the world of that,
nor in any place
betwixt the two.
This alone is the end of suffering.
Buddhism (500 B.C.E.)

For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall never be shaken.
Old Testament

I order you, O sleeper, to awake! I did not create you to be held a prisoner in hell. Rise from the dead, for I am the life of the dead. Rise up, work of my hands, you were created in my image. Rise, let us leave this place, for you are in me and I am in you. Together we form only one person and we cannot be separated! Christian Homily

Jews call this Word the Law; Christians call it the Logos or the blueprint; Taoists call it the Eternal Tao; Buddhists call it Emptiness or the Great Compassion; Hindus call it Brahman; Sufi Muslims call it the dance; and science speaks of universal theories. But we are all pointing to one underlying truth that we all strive toward in ten thousand ways. We all somehow believe it is a coherent and even a benevolent universe. Maybe that is the very heart of the meaning of faith. It is surely the Perennial Tradition discovered by all people of goodwill and sincere search. Richard Rohr (1943)

"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "
