He that will believe only what he can
fully comprehend must have a long head
or a very short creed.
We are not human beings having a
spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings
having a human experience.
Love is a sacred reserve of energy;
it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.
Growing old is like being increasingly
penalized for a crime you haven't committed. 
By means of all created things, without exception,
the divine assails us, penetrates us and moulds us.
We imagined it as distant and inaccessible,
whereas in fact we live steeped in its burning layers.
In eo vivimus.  As Jacob said, awakening from his dream,
the world, this palpable world, to which we brought
the boredom and callousness reserved for profane places,
 is in truth a holy place, and we did not know it.
Venite, adoremus. 
Chardin (1881-1955) was a paleontologist, geologist,
philosopher, Catholic priest, and, unfortunately,
a Jesuit. He was too advanced, intellectually
and spiritually, for the small-minded morons
in Rome. Many of his writings were denied
publication. He was treated basically as
a heretic, a traitor to tradition, dogma,
and infallibility.
It was incredibly high-handed, born of ignorance
and a type of ecclesiastical stupidity that seems
to run deep at the Vatican, as well as among
the Jesuits, who, with all of their intellectual
arrogance and pride, were blind to the
fact that in their midst was a true genius.
This man was talking and writing about
God and the universe in a way that some
readers of THE URANTIA BOOK might
find familar in many respects.
But the Pope and the "Doctrine" slaves
at the Vatican, with the cooperation of the
good Jesuit Fathers, these Sons of St. Ignatius
of Loyola, a mystic and seeker not
unlike Chardin in many respects,
stepped on him.
He was silenced.
Friends had his books published after his death.
The Jesuits: the Pope's "little soldiers,"
the "black-robed CIA" as they're often called,
the dogma defenders,
the losers, remnants of the past.
The day will come when, after harnessing space,
the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness
for God the energies of love. And, on that day,
for the second time in the history of the world,
humankind will have discovered fire.
