Seek God in man, for as we seek him there, the more transparent the veil of flesh becomes and the more perfectly we learn to find him there. If we hold ourselves receptive to the life of spirit, we shall sometimes feel in the depths of our being that mysterious closeness of self and not-self which attests the presence of God in man.
