Man is the link between God and Nature....As God has descended into man, so man must ascend to God.


Jesus said: If the flesh has come into existence because of the spirit, it is a marvel; but if the spirit has come into existence because of the body, it is a marvel of marvels. But I marvel at how this great wealth has made its home in this poverty.

(The Gospel according to Thomas)

The Great Self, having two natures, proceeds with intent to experience both the true and the false.

(Maitri Upanishad, VII. XI. 8)

While God is indeed one, His highest and chiefest powers are two, even goodness and sovereignty. Through His goodness He begat all that is, through His sovereignty He rules what He has begotten.
