200.00 THE UNDERLYING DYNAMIC (pps.78-82)

hard cover page 78

Holy quest for potential is the underlying core dynamic of the cosmic order.

Holy quest for potential-our parallel to the kabbalistic En Sof-is the “primal scream” of the cosmos. Holy Potential, emanating through and from the Divine essence, radiates through the universe-questing, pulsating, exploding, reaching, energizing, expanding, in time and out-of-time.272

It is at the core of the holyhatural drive of the cosmos. It is the primal engine of cosmic existence.273
