Thought for the day, Thursday 16th March

“An ancient Indian scripture says, “I established this universe with one fragment of Myself, and I remain.” Now, if there is only one life in which you are I are partakers, one creative thought by which the worlds were formed and maintained, then, however mighty may be the unexpressed Divine Existence – however true that Divinity transcends manifestation, nonetheless the manifestation is still divine. By understanding this we touch the feet of God. If it is true that he is everywhere and in everything, then he is as much in the marketplace as in the desert, as much in the office as in the jungle, as easily found in the street of the crowded city as in the solitude of the mountain peak.”

Annie Besant (1847 – 1933), theosophist and activist for women’s rights and Home Rule
