Everything, we perceive, is God...

Abu Bakr Muhammad Ibn al-'Arabi :
“Everything we call other than God, everything we call the universe, is related to the Divine Being as the shadow to the person. The world is God's shadow. . . . The shadow is at once God and something other than God. Everything we perceive is the Divine Being in the eternal hexeities
[archetypes] of the possibles.”
quotation in

Lao Tzu:
The tao [Way, Word] that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. -- from the Tao Te Ching.

Meister Eckhart:
The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God's eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love. We are all meant to be mothers of God, for God is always needing to be born. - in wikiquote.
