That the Divine is the same in the greatest and least of things can be illustrated by the example of heaven and an angel there. The Divine throughout the whole of heaven and the Divine in an angel is the same. Therefore the whole of heaven can also appear as a single angel.
It is the same with the church and a member of it. The greatest recipient vessel in which the Divine dwells is heaven as a whole and at the same the church as a whole. The smallest recipient vessel is the angel of heaven or the person of the church.
Several times I have seen an entire society of heaven appearing as a single angelic person; and I have been told that it could appear as a person as great as a giant, or as one as small as a little child-and this because the Divine is the same in the greatest and least of things.
The Divine is also the same in the greatest and least of all created things that are without life; for it is present in every good of the use they serve. They are, however, without life, because they are not forms of life but forms of useful endeavors; and the form varies in accordance with the goodness of the use.
But how the Lord dwells in these will be explained in subsequent discussions where we take up creation.
Eliminate space and reject utterly any notion of a vacuum, and with space eliminated and the notion of a vacuum rejected, think then of Divine love and wisdom as being the absolute essence of all being. Think after that in terms of space, and you will perceive that the Divine in the greatest and least intervals of space is the same. For essence abstracted from space has in it neither greatness nor smallness, but is ever the same.
For, they said, in their world which is spiritual and which lies within or above the space and time continuums of the natural world, they likewise feel, think, are affected, love will, breathe, indeed speak and act, which could not possibly be the case in a vacuum defined as nothingness, because nothing is nothing, and something cannot be predicated of nothing.
Divine which has being fills all things, and that he himself is horrified at the idea of a vacuum as nothingness, because such an idea is destructive of all things.
