We now continue reading the second selected part of Letter Ⅰ, from Karl von Eckartshausen’s book “The Cloud upon the Sanctuary.” The author expands more on some basic spiritual principles and the real Source of Truth and Union with the Divine. “The opening of this spiritual sensorium is the mystery of the New Man – the mystery of Regeneration, and of the vital union between God and man – it is the noblest object of religion on Earth, that religion whose sublime goal is none other than to unite men with God in Spirit and in Truth. As man has internally a spiritual organ and a sensorium to receive the true principle of Divine wisdom, or a true motive for the will or Divine love, he has also exteriorly a physical and material sensorium to receive the appearance of light and truth. As external nature can have no absolute truth, but only phenomenally relative, therefore, human reason cannot cognize pure truth, it can but apprehend through the appearance of phenomena, which excites the lust of the eye, and in this as a source of action consists the corruption of sensuous man and the degradation of nature.”
