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

“”There is a personal God, and there is a personal Devil!” thunders the Christian preacher. “Let him be anathema who dares say nay!” “There is no personal God, except the gray matter in our brain”, contemptuously replies the materialist. “And there is no Devil. Let him be considered thrice an idiot who say aye.”

 
Meanwhile the occultists and true philosophers, heed neither of the two combatants, but keep perserveringly at their work. None of them believe in the absurd, passionate, and fickle God of superstition, but all of them believe in good and evil.

 
Our human reason, the emanation of our finite mind, is certainly incapable of comprehending a divine intelligence, and endless and infinite entity; and, according to strict logic, that which transcends our understanding and would remain thoroughly incomprehensible to our senses cannot exist for us; hence, it does not exist.

 
So far finite reason agrees with science, and says: “There is no God.” But, on the other hand, our Ego, that which lives and thinks and feels independently of us in our mortal casket, does more than believe. It knows that there exists a God in nature, for the sole and invincible Artificer of all lives in us as we live in him.

 
No dogmatic faith or exact science is able to uproot that intuitional feeling inherent in man, when he has once fully realized it in himself.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
