“The INFINITE cannot be known to our reason…”


Monday 12th January 2015

H.P. Blavatsky with Oriental Fan“The INFINITE cannot be known to our reason, which can only distinguish and define; – but we can always conceive the abstract idea thereof, thanks to that faculty higher than our reason, – intuition, or the spiritual instinct of which I have spoken. Only the great initiates, who have the rare power of throwing themselves into the state of Samadhi, – which can be but imperfectly translated by the word ecstacy, a state in which one ceases to be the conditioned and personal “I,” and becomes one with the ALL, – only those can boast of having been in contact with the infinite: but no more than other mortals can they describe that state in words.”

– H.P. Blavatsky, Le Phare de L’Inconnu (“The Beacon-Light of the Unknown”)
