Sat Nam or Naam, True Name, the Holy Name of God, the Word....in Sikh and Hindu traditons...Ref Kirpal Singh, Guru Nanak, Shabd would lead you to many things.

The article in my blog - "The One in Different Religions" has plentiful scriptural citations about Sophia(Wisdom). Search the internet for the title - "The One in Different Religions" and you can find the article. Sorry I cannot post the link here because I am not allowed to do so.

Hi,

You said, “Instead, he claims that prior to the differentiation of various religious paths, there is a universal substratum called Word (logos) of which religions are concretions.”

Can you cite something T.S.Eliot wrote to show that he actually has such an understanding ?

Well, a literary critic said it, not me. But I do agree. Sorry, I am not familiar enough with Mr Eliot to cite specific words of his where he expresses such an understanding. I'd imagine you would have to know his Letters, now published in about seven volumes at hefty prices!

For me, given that he converted to a specific form of the Christian Faith yet without being in any way "fundamentalist" or of the "only way", then I would say that such shows that the literary critics insight was sound.

As I see it the One Source is "empty", therefore can express itself (or His self, or Her self) infinite ways according to the individuality of each.

2-3 sentences when quoting others as the Admin has asked.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru
