True Change Comes from the Divine

Bernadette Roberts

"We must be sure to derive our religion from its original wellsprings, that is, from the unconditioned depths of our own experience of the divine, and not from a conditioned level of consciousness or any secondary source. Change on the conditioned level is merely the presence of a new idea or insight, which is incapable of bringing about true change or having any lasting effects. But change on the unconditioned level where consciousness emerges from the divine and eventually dissolves into it involves an irreversible change, one that moves outward like ripples on the pond to affect us all."
