You should not imagine that your reason can evolve to the extent of understanding God. Rather, if God is to shine divinely within you, your natural light cannot assist this process but must become a pure nothingness, going out of itself.
Only then can God enter with his light, bringing back with him all that you have renounced and a thousand times more, including a new form which contains all things in itself.
The teachings of Jesus are as pure, direct and liberating today as they were before two thousand years of appropriation and institutionalisation by the church ~ and it's just as possible for us now to enter into direct relationship with God.
As Hildegard of Bingen said,
The Word is living, being, spirit, all verdant greening, all creativity. This Word manifests itself in every creature.
