“The INFINITE cannot be known to our reason…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES

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”)
