         All images are dead, whether they are in the mind, or carved in stone. Only the spirit which lives without hindrance from preconception or memory is truly alive; the mind, anchored by concept, ceases to be fluid, and ‘alive’, for it is buried within static thought-structures and therefore has not the plasticity required to engage in the living moment. The supplicant, after all, must be supple.

          Thus we must remain like liquid aspects of the whole (like quicksilver, as it were), without labeling or imagining ourselves as separate, perishable entities. We must see ourselves without the stasis of images- graven images- for these lead to naught but the grave.

          To create static images is to divide the living whole into dying particularities. Thus we must be with God and ourselves, without a concept of what we are nor what God is, for if we have an image, any image, we are bound to that finitude and are not free and infinite.

 

 

“He who seeks, let him not cease seeking until he finds;

and when he finds he will be troubled,

and if he is troubled he will be amazed...”

Gospel of Thomas

 

 

         What we are striving to accomplish is a release from the limited context of the manifest, of the flesh, of ‘knowing’. We are seeking to return to the freedom and limitlessness of the soul before the fall, when all was divine, mysterious, and mercurial in nature. It is within this living mystery that union occurs between parts no longer seen as separate. That is when mankind and God shall no longer be divided. That is when God is...“Unknown and yet well known.” (2 Corinthians 6:9) Unknown because God remains a mystery; known because we are intimate with that mystery.

          And that is when “We are fools for Christ's sake...” (1 Corinthians 4:10), as St. Paul advised; to be a fool so as not to be divided from the great enigma. For there is one thing we can be certain of- the mind is not the savior, the mind is the trap.

         Hence we are admonished that we ought never commit the sin of imagining we ‘know’, for that only perpetuates the Fall, and does not reunite the whole. As it is stated: “And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.” (1 Corinthians 8:2)
