"God is present in all creation, everywhere….we are always in the presence of God; our task is merely to recognize that fact and to act with love and reverence toward all life, including those parts of it we would normally think of as inanimate." Tasha Halpert, 'Musings of a Homegrown Mystic'
"Wisdom, Strength and Beauty have been employed by the Creator, like three grand supporting pillars, in the structure of his own organism."
The Meaning of Masonry
(W. L. Wilmshurst)
"God is the Maker of all things, and makes all things like to himself."
(Walter Scott, translator)
"A God who created the world as one perceives it as one and loves it as one. That which is love cannot withhold love. His hand is in the tiniest details, whether they're a million miles away or right at the tip of my nose. His creation is a panoply of radiant genius reaching from the smallest wildflower to the mystery of quarks."
Everyday Grace, Having Hope, Finding Forgiveness, and Making Miracles
"The overwhelming thrust of the Koran is to proclaim the unity, omnipotence, omniscience, and mercy of God."
The World's Religions
“This transcendently real Godhead is the source of everything. It is the cause which gives being. It is the power holding all things together and the goal embracing all things.”
Pseudo-Dionysius, The Complete Works
(John Farina, Editor-in-Chief)
"To me it seems that every atom is possessed by a certain amount of primitive intelligence. Look at the thousands of ways in which atoms of hydrogen combine with those of other elements, forming the most diverse substances. Do you mean to say that they do this without intelligence? Atoms in harmonious and useful relation assume beautiful or interesting shapes and colours, or give forth a pleasant perfume, as if expressing their satisfaction…gathered together in certain forms, the atoms constitute animals of the lower order. Finally they combine in man, who represents the total intelligence of all the atoms…. The existence of God can, to my mind, be proved from chemistry." Thomas Edison, interview in Harpers's Magazine, February, 1890
