-A certain humility is necessary to accept revelation, for so long as one holds that they are the greatest mind in the universe, revelation is impossible. This is true regardless of whether one holds it as a speculative matter (no mind is greater than our own) or as a practical or quasi-moral matter (if one holds that revelation, if given, can only be such that it engenders knowledge in us of the things revealed, as opposed to faith.)
-The mind simply cannot assimilate the highest revelations to itself by its means of knowing in this life. Imagiation and sensation are a veil that we forever are throwing over what is most intelligible. Mind cannot fashion the truth of the highest revelations out of the things of imagination and sense which it carries along with itself.
But for all this, it would not befits the divine goodness not to remain closed in himself. This is true simply from the fact of creation as such. Creation is a certain refusal to remain wholly within oneself; it is a decision to draw another into a shared life out of one’s own goodness.
