Jacob Boehme Quote – “It is not ‘man’ in the abstract who recognizes anything…”

It is not “man” in the abstract who recognizes anything. It is always a certain principle, having become active in him, that recognizes its own counterpart in external nature, when it comes in contact with it. Only he in whom is light can see the light; only the element of love can feel love; only the divinity in man can know God in and through man.

Jacob Boehme (1575 – 1624)
