God created … so that God’s creation, God’s splendor, might joyfully declare as it shines back: I subsist, I stand under, I am ! –  Dante Alighieri

To be enlightened is to be intimate with all things. – Zen Master Dogen

And if the earthly no longer knows your name, whisper to the silent earth: I am flowing to the flashing water say: I am. – Rainer Maria Rilke

I hear and behold God in every object, yet I understand God not in the least.

Walt Whitman

God is the partner of your most intimate soliloquies. – Victor Frankl

A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison … – Albert Einstein

You can call it wisdom, or sanity, or health, or enlightenment.  I use the word God as a shortcut.  I am comfortable with the word God because I don’t have the foggiest idea of what that means. – Stephen Levine

When you are ultimately truthful with yourself, you will eventually realize and confess that, “I am Buddha, I am Spirit.”  Anything short of that is a lie, the lie of the ego, the lie of the separate-self sense, the contraction in the face of infinity.  The deepest recesses of your consciousness directly intersect Spirit itself, in the supreme identity.  This is not a state you are bringing into existence for the first time, but simply a timeless state that you are recognizing and confessing – you are being ultimately truthful when you state, “I am Buddha, the ultimate Beauty.” – Ken Wilber
