Quote for the day

It is only by beginning from the truth of Being that the essence of the sacred lets itself be thought. It is only by beginning from the essence of the sacred that the essence of divinity is to be thought. And it is only in the light of the essence of divinity that whatever the word 'God' names can be thought.
- Martin Heidegger

Great quote. But what then can be thought about God, the divine or the sacred, if people are not in touch with being?

Presumably merely morality and the requirement to submit to the interpreters of God's morality...

Whom, one hopes and presumes have had the requisite experience?
