We should think of God, not only as Principle, forever pushing forward into expression; but as Infinite Person.
There is something in the human mind that desires to think of God or Spirit as Person. Anything which has been in the human mind since time began–anything we are unable to erase from the human mind as a deep urge–arises out of Reality.
In each one of us, to each one of us, through each one of us, something is personalized … Spiritual evolution should make the Infinite not more distant; but more intimate.
– Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind, 1938
One thing have I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life,
to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness]
of the Lord
and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple.
