For I am not alone

I alone cannot carry out in practice all that ought to be; I cannot do anything alone. But, thank God, there is no such thing as “I alone.” Although in my thoughts and my will I separate myself from everything, it is a great deception. For I am not alone. Within me is God Almighty and the world – that is, all that is contained in God. and manis dear to God, not as a passive instrument of His will, but as a voluntary ally and participator in His work in the universe. For this participation of human beings must of necessity be included in the very purpose of God’s activity in this world”
