Each individual must interpret the Universe for himself since he has to interpret It to himself. The Universe can interpret Itself for him only by interpreting Itself through him. God can give us only what we take, and the taking is the Self-Expression of God in us — not something other or different from God, not something which has succeeded in passing a dividing line, but Itself is God.
The urge which causes us to say I am is more than an urge causing us to express a Power which extends Itself through us or an Intelligence which uses us as an instrument for Its activity. This urge in us which causes us to say I am is God. Hence our self-awareness is Its Self-Awareness. This perception of Unity has been basic to the spiritual genius of the ages, and is but another way of saying that God is all there is. The enigma of Unity is solved in such degree as one perceives Unity in multiplicity and multiplicity in Unity.
We are using this illustration of axioms not to confuse nor to mystify, but to show that, through all the attempts which ever have been made to teach the Truth, this one central theme has run — the Indivisible Unity of God and man. Every sacred literature of the ages contains it.
To realize that this Indivisible Wholeness is at the center of our own being is to understand that the Power of our individual word is an activity of the Infinite and Eternal I Am, the Everlasting and Perfect Spirit. That spirit in us is us. No greater Unity could be delivered than that which by the very nature of being cannot be withheld.
