Balance between everything is the way of existing in creation. Man accepts and adopts that way of his own free will. Thus he realizes the good in himself, his nature as the Divine image and createdness in the most beautiful uprightness. By doing this out of his own free will, he is faithful with the Faithful, oneness in which distance and incomparability—none is equal to Him; nothing can be compared with Him—are revealed in closeness and similarity. God is closer to man than his jugular vein; He is with you wherever you are, and whichever way you turn there is the Face of God. Love is the impulse of oneness toward multiplicity, but it is also the impulse of multiplicity, which is nothing other than duality, toward oneness. Here are both the cause and the aim of humanity: the satisfaction of the revelation of oneness has drawn this humanity, together with the world, into existence. The satisfaction of return will turn duality toward oneness.
