We don’t know

The fact is that you’re surrounded by God,

and you don’t see God

because you know ABOUT God.

The final barrier to the vision of God is your God concept.

You miss God because you think you know. 

That’s the terrible thing about religion. That’s what the gospels were saying, that religious people knew, so they got rid of Jesus.

The highest knowledge of God is to know God as unknowable.

Excerpt from Awareness, by Anthony De Mello
