Normal Eye of Horus (Ma'at Heru)
eyeofhorus1 Visible and Invisible

Our view in regard to God, will contain only as much Truth as the human mind is capable or receiving; whether that Truth is obtained by reason, or communicated by revelation. It must necessarily be both limited and alloyed, to bring it within the competence of finite human intelligence. Being finite, we can form no correct or adequate idea of the Infinite; being material, we can form no clear conception of the Spiritual. We do believe in and know the infinity of Space and Time, and the spirituality of the Soul; but the idea of that infinity and spirituality eludes us. Even Omnipotence cannot infuse infinite conceptions into finite minds. Human intelligence could not grasp it, nor human language express it. The Visible is, necessarily, the measure of the Invisible.

Normal Eye of Horus (Ma'at Heru)
eyeofhorus1 Faith

God is thus not an object of knowledge, but of faith; not to be approached by the Understanding, but by the Moral Sense; not to be conceived, but to be felt. All attempts to embrace the Infinite in the conception of the Finite are, and must only be accommodations to the frailty of man. Shrouded from human comprehension in an obscurity from which a chastened imagination is awed back, and Thought retreats in conscious weakness, the Divine Nature is thus a theme in which man is little entitled to dogmatizes. Here the philosophic Intellect becomes most painfully aware of its own insufficiency.

Normal Eye of Horus (Ma'at Heru)
eyeofhorus1 Pursuit of Perfection

Yet, it is in the realm of Faith, where humans most dogmatizes, classifies, and describes God's attributes, makes out our map of God's nature, and our inventory of God's qualities, feelings, impulses, and passions; and then hangs and burns our family, who as dogmatically as they, makes out a different map and inventory. The common understanding has no humility. Its God is an incarnate Divinity. Perfect Truth is not obtainable anywhere. Yet, we are not to relax the pursuit of a Truth, nor contently relax in error. It is our duty always to press forward in the search; the error in our views is capable of progressive and perpetual diminution; we must ever struggle toward the Light.

jayanti_pandey Celebration #WorldHeritageDay , I remember my trip to #Egypt in 2006 , which boasts of one of the oldest civilizations of the world. This photograph is of the #Philae temple. Philae is an island in the reservoir of the #Aswan Low #Dam, downstream of the Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser. The temple dedicated to the #Goddess #Isis is one of Evypt's most sacred destinations.
