on praise to the Divine

Reading G.R.S. Mead’s Hymns of Hermes ‘Ecstatic Songs of Gnosis’, he asks the question of who is actually capable of singing God’s praises when it requires the whole universe and the countless universes of all that is, to sign the praises of God in any truly adequate manner?

Who, then, what man, has the understanding wherewith to praise God fitly, when through in his separated consciousness he knows not who he is, he yet begins to realise that “who he really is” must inevitably be God and no other?

In what manner can the Divine sing praises of itself as of some other than itself, when ‘I’ and ‘Thou’ must essentially be one, and the utterance of praise as of some other one seems to be a departure from the blessed state of that Divine intuition.

Give that some thought.
