"What has to happen by knowing God is that why does God want you to know Him? Because He wants to see His reflection in you. That is why He has created you and He wants to see His reflection in you. Same with the Goddess, She has given you Self Realization because She wants to see Her reflection in you. So you have to prepare yourself for that reflection, which is so much purer, beautiful, loving, compassionate and above all full of wisdom."
(H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Shri Krishna Puja, Cabella, 2000).
"He who sees the Infinite in all things sees God. He who sees the Ratio only sees himself only. Therefore God becomes as we are, that we may be as he is."
(William Blake, There is No Natural Religion, Lambeth, England, 1794)
"No one can see the being of God externally; the spirit sees God in itself, and in its own fellow-creatures, for God is the spirit of all beings."
(Jacob Boehme, 1575-1624)
"All God wants of you is for you to go out of yourself in respect of your creatureliness, and let God be God in you. The smallest of creaturely images that ever takes shape in you is as big as God. How so? Because it shuts out the whole of God. As soon as this image appears, God disappears with all his Godhood. As this image fades out, God comes in."
(Meister Eckhart, c.1260-1328)
"People who look for God in hills and woods and valleys see him as bound by his sacraments and works, and are silent and miserable for not finding him. But those who find him everywhere, not just in forests and mountaintops, through uniting their will to his, have a happy and enjoyable life."
(Marguerite Porette, d. 1310)
