    Sounds like a quote from Ernest Holmes in Science of Mind. Aha! The hidden origins of metaphysics in the Cloud of Unknowing! :-)

  2. Dear Carl,
    For me, this quote ooozes an extraordinarily ordinary invitation….a nectar infused wift of what life after the spiritual ego holds for us!
    ….and to think that our spiritual ego won’t be engaged to lap it up!!!!!
    O the mysteries of the utterly ordinary!!!!!
    A companion on the journey,

  3. ps….this book came to mind:….Humility Matters by Meg Funk…a intensely detailed ‘compass of the heart’ book for us mere ‘tongue lappers’ hovering around the bowl of spiritual unknowingness,
