Nothing Else But God...
--G. K. Chesterton, in his book Saint Francis of Assisi
What does it mean to be All? God is the sole Reality. God is the Source of all things and their Substance. There is no thing or feeling or thought that is not from God, even the idea that there is no God! For this is what it is to be All: God must embrace even God's own negation.
Listen again: God is the Source and Substance of everything and its opposite. There is nothing outside of God. Thus we read: "I am God and there is none else" (Isaiah 45:5). Not simply that there is no other god but God, as our Moslem cousins say, but that there is nothing else but God, which is what their Sufi masters whisper to the initiated.
