' We call it God '...


When we, human beings, through our most enlightened representatives, look for the highest principle of being, life, existence, consciousness--the Supreme Power, the Origin of all Substance, the ultimate Deity, in fact--we find It is one and the same thing looked at from different human standpoints.

It is nameless but we may call it, Mind.

There is no point where we can come into contact with It for It transcends everything, every human capacity.

When we look for It in relation to the universe which includes us, we may call It World-Mind, or in religious terminology, God.

Here there is real possibility of a contact, for in our innermost self the connection is already there.
