Reflection


Wisdom is a spotless mirror reflecting without distortion the workings of God in the world as the world. (Wisdom 7:26)

Just as you cannot see your own face except as a reflection, so you cannot see God's face, Eternal Wisdom, except in a reflection.

Nature is that reflection,

Yet do not limit Wisdom to creation alone, for She is more; She is creativity itself streaming from the Ineffable Source of which nothing can be said.
