Wise Fridays: Where Clarity Comes From

By | Tagged: beliefs, texts

All clarity derives from faith, and faith is initially a composite of fear and love. The soul in its inner being senses that faith, fear and love. To whatever extent these values are encountered toward other subjects, it is all made possible through some illumination from a divine spark that reaches there. Faith in God is the most exalted concept. Because of its profundity it is lowered to reach all levels, even the lowest. It is interpreted on each level according to its capacity of comprehension.
