To the question, "What is God?" and "What is man?" the answer is that the soul, conscious of its limited existence, is "man", and the soul reflected by the vision of the unlimited, is "God." In plain words man's self-consciousness is man, and man's consciousness of his highest ideal is God. By communion between these two, in time both become one, as in reality they are already one. And yet the joy of communion is even greater than the joy of at-one-ment, for all joy of life lies in the thought of "I" and "you."
