“What do you see, chemist? What do you see, scientist? Ah! I know what you see. My experience in the realm of matter and of Spirit tell me what you see. O thou stupendous sex force sex days of creation, thou FatherMother Yahveh, thou divine male and female, thou eternal positive and negative dynamis! We now behold thee operating. Out from the chemicalizing mass of God’s creative compounds, out of the quivering, vibrating substance, slowly comes forth the rose. But are you sure it is a rose? Hold a moment. What is a rose? Of what material is it formed? Ah! the chemist speaks he of the crucibles and test-tubes and acids! Hear the chemist!
He says, ‘The rose is made from the universal substance,’ or ‘The rose is universal substance, in a certain rate of activity.’ Thanks! Blessed be the chemist! Universal one verse one substance no other substance God is the rose, or the smile we call a rose God is again manifested in the great Eternal IT, for which there is no other name.
Job did not say, ‘I see the thoughts of God,’ nor did he say, ‘I can fathom the mind of God.’ The plan cannot be seen; but that which is planned a planet can be seen. One may see the substance of God without understanding the mind of God.
Let us hear Emerson on this stupendous, glorious theme:
‘The great idea baffles wit;
Language falters under it;
It leaves the learned in the lurch
Nor art, nor power, nor toil can find
The measure of the Eternal Mind,
Nor hymn, nor prayer, nor church.’
O thou ever-present Divine Mind and Substance! We now fully realize our oneness with thee, and bathe and revel in thy glory. The mighty Angel of Reality has torn the veil of illusion, and we see the celestial City of Truth with wide-open gates and the white light of Eternal Love forever upon its streets.
O thou, in the shadow of sickness and trial, ‘Take up thy bed and walk; thy sins be forgiven thee.’
The just read excerpt came from the book God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 36, which was written by Dr. George Carey.
