"The God I know does not ask us to conform to some abstract norm for the ideal self. God asks us only to honor our created nature, which means our limits as well as our potentials. When we fail to do so, reality happens - God happens - and the way closes behind us . . .
The attempt to live by the reality of our own nature, which means our limits as well as our potentials, is a profoundly moral regimen . . .
One dwells with God by being faithful to one's nature."
