The Divine Response – “The utter simplicity of my divine game appears to be highly intricate as soon as you try to understand it through your intellect”

Do not try with your limited mind to understand the significance of my actions, nor try to imitate them. You must not do what I do, but do what I tell you to do. To try to bring my every action within the orbit of your understanding is but to understand the limitations of […]

The Divine Response – “My response, being a divine response, is wholly and entirely one of love.”
