Practical Mysticism - CHAPTER VI - LOVE AND WILL

"Only the real, say the mystics, can know Reality, for “we behold that which we are,” the universe which we see is conditioned by the character of the mind that sees it: and this realness—since that which you seek is no mere glimpse of Eternal Life, but complete possession of it—must apply to every aspect of your being, the rich totality of character, all the “forces of the soul,” not to some thin and isolated “spiritual sense” alone."

spirit within

I am not good at coming up with Bible verses, but Jesus left the Holy Spirit behind so that all my know him. I also know it has been mentioned on this site that when Jesus entered the city that He said that the rocks would sing if the people didn't. So there is something of God in everything. As Julian of Norwich said, that God even loved the hazelnut. This isn't to get confused with pantheism, which believes that creation is God, but rather God transcends all and is a part of all. When you love one of the least of these, you are loving God.
