Isis Unveiled: chapter I (an axiom of hermetic philosophy)

“Our modern science acknowledges a Supreme Power, an Invisible Principle, but denies a Supreme Being, or Personal God. Logically, the difference between the two might be questioned; for in this case the Power and the Being are identical.

Human reason can hardly imagine to itself an intelligent Supreme Power without associating it with the idea of an Intelligent Being. The masses can never be expected to have a clear conception of the omnipotence and omnipresence of a supreme God, without investing with those attributes a gigantic projection of their own personality.

But the kabalists have never looked upon the invisible EN-SOPH (Divine Word or Supreme Creator; the Infinite Intellectual Light) otherwise than as a Power.”

H. P. Blavatsky
