Without Holding the Universe in One’s Hand,
One Cannot Create a Particle
To raise up the earth together with innumerable suns and stars and string them in order like prayer-beads,
And to place them on the head and chest of endless space – no one’s hand has the strength for this.
There is nothing in the world that can claim to create anything.
Raising a Species to Life Is The Same as Raising to Life an Individual
Just as raising to life a fly drowsy with death-tainted sleep presents no difficulty to Divine power,
So will neither the death of the earth nor its resurrection present any difficulty.
Nor will raising to life all beings with spirits present much problem.
Nature Is Divine Art
Nature is not the printer, it is the press;
It is not the inscriber, but the inscription; it is not the doer, it is the recipient; It is not the source, but the pattern. It is not the orderer, it is the order;
It is not the power, but the law; it is a code of laws proceeding from the attribute of will; it has no external reality.
The Conscience Recognizes God Through Attraction
In the conscience is an attraction, a being drawn; it is permanently drawn through the attraction of an attractive force.
If the All-Beauteous One were to appear, if He were to be manifested permanently in refulgent fashion without veil, conscious beings would be overcome by ecstasy.
Man’s conscious nature testifies decisively to a Necessarily Existent, One of Glory and Beauty;
It testifies through the ecstasy, and the attraction.
