The Supreme Fact of the Universe

Mentors - Ralph Waldo Trine

"If there is wisdom, there must be the all-wise source back of it from which it springs."

The great central fact of the Universe is that, there is that Spirit of Infinite Life and Power that is back of it all, that animates all, that manifests Itself in and trough all; that self-existent Principle of Life from which all has come, and not only from which all has come, but from which all is continually coming.

If there is an individual life, there must of necessity be an Infinite Source of Life from which it comes. If there is a quality or force of Love, there must of necessity be an Infinite Source of Love, whence it comes. If there is wisdom, there must be the All-Wise source back of it from which it springs. The same is true in regard to peace, the same in regard to power, and the same in regard to what we call material things.

There is then, this Spirit of Infinite Life and Power back of all which is the Source of All. This Infinite Power is creating, working, ruling through the agency of great immutable laws and forces that run through all the Universe, that surround us on every side. Every act of our everyday lives is governed by these same great laws and forces. Every flower that blooms by the wayside, springs up, grows, blooms, and fades, according to certain great immutable laws. Every snowflake that plays between earth and heaven, also forms, falls, and melts, according to certain great, unchangeable laws.

In a sense, there is nothing in the entire great Universe, but Law. If this is true, there must of necessity be a force behind it all that is the maker of these laws and a force behind it all that is the maker of these laws and a force that is greater than these laws that are made.

 

This Spirit of Infinite Life and Power that is back of all, is what I call God.

 

God, then, is this Infinite Spirit which fills all the Universe with Himself alone, so that all is from Him, and in Him, and there is nothing that is outside.

~Ralph Waldo Trine, excerpt from: "In Tune With The Infinite", 1897~
