La conscience de l'Absolu2016
For the sage, each star, each flower, metaphysically proves the Infinite.
This dethronement of Nature, or this scission between man and the earth—a reflection of the scission between man and God—has borne such bitter fruits that it should not be difficult to admit that, in these days, the timeless message of Nature constitutes a spiritual viaticum of
the first importance…. It is not a matter of projecting a supersaturated and disillusioned individualism into a desecrated Nature—this would be a worldliness like any other—but, on the contrary, of rediscovering in Nature, on the basis of the traditional outlook, the divine
substance which is inherent in it; in other words, to “see God everywhere”.
