Moving the world from within

What were a God who only gave the world a push from without, 
or let it spin around His finger? 
I look for a God who moves the world from within, 
who fosters nature in Himself, Himself in nature; 
so that naught of all that lives and moves and has its being in Him ever forgets His force or His spirit.
- JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE
"Phoœmion"

This gorgeous quote 
points to 
the Unique Self,
as coined and articulated by Gafni

...In which the animating Eros of all-that-is 
the ecstatic evolutionary impulse 
 urgently seeks 
to live in you, as you, and through you
~ Unique Self ~
the unique individualized expression of essence that is
God/Source/Spirit
having a
You
experience
as above
so below
as 
within
so 
without
...
