TODAY I FEEL THAT I MERGE WITH THE INFINITE
Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is high as heaven… The measure thereof is larger than the earth, and broader than the sea.
Job 11: 7-9
The Tao cannot be heard; what can be heard is not It. The Tao cannot be seen; what can be seen is not It. The Tao cannot be expressed in words; what can be expressed in words is not It. Do we know the Formless which gives form to form? In the same way the Tao does not admit of being.
Realize that thou art “that” – Brahm, which is the cessation of all differentiation, which never changes its nature and is as unmoved as a waveless ocean, eternally unconditioned and undivided.
Job asks us if we can find God by searching. He means that since God is everywhere, and since the subtle essence of the Infinite is invisible, we do not have to search out the Divine Spirit, but, rather, we should recognize It as the center of all life. That which we see is merely a reflection of this invisible Presence. The Spirit Itself cannot be seen, but It is felt. Just as we do not see the essence of beauty, but do feel its presence, so we do not see God but we do feel the Divine in everything. The Creator is revealed in His creation. The Formless gives rise to the formed. We should consciously unite ourselves with this invisible Essence which pervades everything, that which our lesson says is eternally unconditioned and undivided. To do this is to find wholeness.
Today I feel that I merge with the Infinite. While there seems to be a beginning and an end to each particular experience, there is neither beginning nor end to myself. My real spirit is omnipresent in God, secure in Good, and perfect in Divine Being.
