love of God

A Quote by EF Shumacher on transcendental longing, love of god, and liberation from constraints

"...liberation from constraints that operate at the level of ordinary humanity---limits imposed by space and time, by the needs of the body, and by the opaqueness of the computer-like mind. All three examples [Jacob Lorber, Edgar Cayce, and Therese Neumann] illustrates the paradoxical truth that such 'higher powers' cannot be acquired by any kind of attack or conquest conducted by the human personality; only when the striving for 'power' has entirely ceased and been replaced by a certain transcendental longing, often called the love of God, may they, or may they not be 'added unto you.'"

A Quote by Meir Ben Isaac Neherai (c. 1050) on ink, ocean, blade of grass, parchment, trade, scribe, god, love of god, scroll, and sky

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
Were every blade of grass a quill,
Were the world of parchment made,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor would the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Meir Ben Isaac Neherai (c. 1050)
