Quit Trying

“God is known both in all objects and outside all objects. God is
known both through knowing and through unknowing . . . He is nothing
of what is, and therefore cannot be known through anything that is;
and yet He is all in all. His is nothing in anything; and yet his
known by all in all, at the same time as He is not known by anything
in anything.”
– Dionysius the Areopagite, “The Divine Names,” VII, 3.

“Well, hell,” I say, “then who can ever know you, God?” “Exactly.” You say, “Quit trying.”

I’m trying to quit trying. Not much success so far.
