"God is not loving. God is love, the great heart of the universe and of man, from which is drawn forth all feeling, sympathy, emotion and all that goes to make up the joys of existence.
Yet God does not love anybody or anything. God is love; man becomes loving by permitting that which is God is to find expression in word and act.
The point to be clearly established is that God exercises none of His attributes except through the inner consciousness of the universe and man.
God is the 'still small voice' in every soul that heals and blesses and uplifts, and it is only through the soul that He is made manifest as perfect wholeness.
Drop from your mind the idea that God is a being of majesty and power in the sense that you now interpret majesty and power.
Drop from your mind the belief that God is in any way separated from you or that He can be manifested to you in any way except through your own consciousness.
We look at the universe with its myriad forms and stupendous evidences of wisdom and power and we say: All this must be the work of one mighty in strength and understanding; I should stand in awe of such a one and realize my own insignficance in His presence. Yet when we behold the towering oak with its wide-spreading branches, we say it grew from a tiny acorn. A little stream of life and inteligence flowed into that small seed and gradually formed the giant tree. It was not created in the sense that it was made full-orbed by a single fiat of will, but it grew from the tiny slip into the towering tree through the inherent potentialities of the little seed, the acorn.
So God is in us the little seed through which is brought forth the strong and healthy [person].
That 'still small voice' at the center of our being does not command what we shall be or what we shall do. It is so gentle and still in its work that in the hurly-burly of life we overlook it entirely. We look out, and beholding the largeness of the world of things, we begin to cast about for a god corresponding in character with this world.
But we do not find such a god on the outside. We must drop the complex and find the simplicity of 'the most simple one' before we can know God. We must become as a little child."
