No Limitations for God

We do not believe that God the Almighty has any limitations, nor can He ever be limited to any specific dimensions. What we know about God is that just as He is there on the heavens so He is there on the earth as well. As for human relations with Him they are of two types. One, His general relationship with the common man and His special relationship with His special servants who purify themselves and advance in His love. He gets so near to them that it seems as if He speaks through them. It is very peculiar about Him that despite the fact that He is very far, He is very close and despite the fact that He is very close, He is far. He is very near yet it cannot be said that He is near as two physical bodies can come near each other. He is above everything and yet it can not be said that there is something below Him (i.e. something like Him, just next to Him). He is very much manifest but at the same time He is very much hidden. The more a man acquires true purification the more he begins to understand God.
