Today we’ll read the concluding part of Letter Ⅰ from Karl von Eckartshausen book “The Cloud upon the Sanctuary.” The author reveals how one could lift the veil before the Divine Sanctuary, or our innermost treasured Self. “With, however, its unfoldment, the curtain is all at once raised, the impenetrable veil is torn away, the cloud before the Sanctuary lifts, a new world suddenly exists for us, scales fall from the eyes, and we are at once transported from the phenomenal world to the regions of Truth. God alone is substance, absolute Truth; He alone is He who is, and we are what He has made us. For Him, all exists in Unity, for us, all exists in multiplicity. The great and true work of building the Temple consists solely in destroying the miserable Adamic hut and in erecting a Divine temple; this means, in other words, to develop in us the interior sensorium, or the organ to receive God. After this process, the metaphysical and incorruptible principle rules over the terrestrial, and man begins to live, not any longer in the principle of self-love, but in the Spirit and in the Truth, of which he is the Temple.”
