Dfurstane (Eternal Essence) is the Way, Truth, and Light
To embrace the all in all is having an appreciation of creation’s manifestations. The heavenly bodies - the sun, moon, and stars, known and unknown planets traversing the sky are phenomenal. The trees, plants, oceans, rivers, streams, mountains, hills and valleys speak in their own language, while being buffeted by the wind. So are the seasons – spring, summer, autumn, and winter with their distinct moods. Sometimes it’s calm, beautiful, and glorious, while occasionally there are hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and forest fires.
But birds, reptiles, fishes, and animals of all sorts inhabit the earth living on land or in seas. They breed, feed, and exist in a divine and unpredictable reality. These creatures in their respective environments are provided for by nature. People breathe fresh air, pick fruits from trees, enjoy the meats of animals, drink refreshing water, build cozy houses with wood of trees, light a fire to cook their meals, and dress in warm clothing from nature’s bounty.
This is only a part of the Eternal Essence that’s within, above, below, and around us. To personalize this Essence is only a metaphor. S/he is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, immanent, and transcendent. No words can adequately describe this all-encompassing Essence that’s the sum of all living and non-living things.
