Self-Knowledge has always been the theme of the Illumined, who know and teach God and the Self to be One. As long as one believes himself to be separate from God,he will remain mortal to himself. Sooner or later, everyone must release himself from a hypothetical mind of his own, and turn unconditionally to God - identifying himself with God alone.
God is Mind. Mind can never be deprived of Itself. God is Love. Love cannot divorce Itself. The place whereon we stand is the place where God Is. God is His own Safety, His own Security, His own Peace. Everything in Himself is fully held by Him. His whole Universe of Perfection and Completeness is in Him, and He in It. God is His own Illumination, His own Revelation, His own Heaven.
