Is It a Mystery?
Will not cancer grow in the lungs of smokers?
Will this be a mystery? Is it not foretold?
Will the heart of him who indulges his appetite not be strained, even until it fails to support him?
Would even this be a mystery?
Can the birds remain when the cold winds enter?
Can the tree seek not the light above?
Can the bull sleep while the herd is threatened and unsettled?
Thus, I cannot but speak the words which are given to me by the Father, for I am a prophet, and a prophet must prophesy.
God is not only within us, but we are within God.
Heraclitus, in effect, set off a metaphysical gold rush when he spoke:
The oneness of all wisdom
may be known, or not,
by the name of God.1
Knowledge we gain from gnosis, for true knowledge may be found in God, who may be found within.
To know is to be in communion with the oneness of all wisdom.
