For he alone is a good man who, having set at nought all created things, stands facing straight, with no side-glances, towards the eternal Word, and is imaged and reflected there in righteousness.
      *[German sermon 14b, trans M.O’C. Walshe]
The human spirit must transcend number and break through multiplicity, and God will break through him; and just as He breaks through into me, so I break through into Him. 
      **[German sermon 14b, trans M.O’C. Walshe] 
God is at home, it's we who have gone out for a walk.
God is within, but we are out; God is at home, but we are strangers.
"God is nowhere . . . God is not here or there, neither in time or place."
To be full of things is to be empty of God. To be empty of things is to be full of God.
"All that God asks you most pressingly is to go out of yourself . . . and let God be God in you" 
      ***[cf. Walshe Sermon 13b]

Since it is God's nature not to be like anyone, we have to come to the state of being nothing in order to enter into the same nature that He is.  
      ****[German sermon 7, trans M.O’C. Walshe]

A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or, he may be in Church and be aware of God; but, if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him. He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere.
      ***** [Sermon II : The Nearness of the Kingdom]

"God rests in Himself, and makes all things rest in Him."
