Religion is the art of doing the impossible. It is the science of making the impossible, possible. The potential, actual.
It is impossible.
And that is why you must do it.
Man is capable of doing the impossible. Breaking the rules of the game. Turning himself inside out. Stepping out of the matrix.
The fact that it is not possible is why it is so essential – because it is beyond our utilitarian ways of living. The ho-hum status quo. It requires imagination to do the impossible. It requires a madman to do anything great and to do the impossible.
Man needs an impossible mission, an eternal quest. Nothing less will ever satisfy him. After thousands upon thousands of lives of succeeding and failing in limited and relative pursuits, our soul thirsts for an eternal goal.
An eternal goal requires that man become eternal to attain it. And an immortal goal requires that man becomes immortal to attain it.
“I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
It is impossible, yet it is possible.
You cannot do it… but it can happen.
Can you know these both to be true simultaneously? If so you have the key.
“The things that are impossible with man are possible with God.”
You must Dare – you must dare to do the impossible.
You must dare to love and dare to die – for love is the realisation of the impossible and death is the realisation of love.
It is impossible for man to become God
But it is possible for man to BE God
