Boehme taught that we human beings have a hidden essence within us that is God. A divine spark that remains within us looking to be found. “An immortal Dowry.” – “an inward Ground and unlost Possession.”
He talked of an “innermost Birth” that happens when we start the work of discovering this inward Dowry. I can’t help but think of the immortalized Latin inscription so common amongst alchemists:
“Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem”
Of course, Boehme and I are kindred spirits. My inner mystic will always side with those who see the connecting threads of philosophy and spiritual belief. Inner transformation has always been subjective to those of us who brave the journey within.
May we all find God at the center of our being. Peace be with you all.
