“As the wise Greeks declared, we are all rays of the central spiritual Sun, and just as you cannot separate the golden orb from its individual rays, so you cannot really separate the Absolute Being from the individual souls emanating from it. Because of this fact in Nature, the way to the discovery of your self-divinity exists unbroken for each one of you.”
I believe the following quote from the works of the alchemical philosopher Paracelsus (1493 -1541) is also very relevant to the same topic:
"There is an earthly sun, which is the cause of all heat, and all who are able to see may see the sun; and those who are blind and cannot see the sun may feel the heat. There is an Eternal Sun, which is the source of all wisdom, and those whose spiritual senses have awakened to life will see that sun and be conscious of an existence of a sublime power; but those who have not attained spiritual Consciousness may yet feel this power by an inner faculty which is called Intuition."
