The great Spirit – transcendent and immanent


We should understand well that all things are the work of the Great Spirit. We should know that He is within all things: the trees, the grasses, the rivers, the mountains, and all the four-legged animals, and the winged peoples; and even more important, we should understand that He is also above all these things and peoples. When we do understand all this deeply in our hearts, then we will fear, and love, and know the Great Spirit, and then we will be and act and live as He intends.

    • The spark is and isn’t the flame (or fire), appearance is and isn’t that which appears, the voice is and isn’t the speaker (or utterer), the space within a pot is and isn’t the space outside the pot… Mind is and isn’t Consciouness.
