in response to reader comment: The King's Return Cannot be Hidden - There is Only One Path for His Return to Jerusalem

It is an axiom that the resolution to all paradox is revealed in the terms of an expression of higher unity. In G-D alone is the resolution and the salvation. If the truth of G-D speaks from within a man then that is HIS truth and not the mere opinion of any mortal. G-D is beyond all ideas of religion or methods and practices of worship. HE is beyond all doctrine and dogma. If we are to approach HIM, if only in our thinking, we must slip the restricting bonds of of dogma and cease in the perverse habit of attempting to "define" G-D for G-D, being infinite, is quite literally beyond definition. I cannot obtain to any objective view of G-D but I can entertain only the purely subjective view of my own experience. But my experience, though it may be similar to the views of other men, is still mine alone and it cannot be interpreted or understood in the terms or words of other men. That is why I must hold to my own personal book, the recorded experience of my own life and not give myself over to the thoughts and ideas of other men. It is not for me to indulge the perverse speculations of the Christologists or those others who would seek to put G-D in a bottle to hawk as a soporific in the market place of ideas. Rather it is for me to seek to open the eye of the soul so that all men might have their own view of the wonder that is G-D.
