Plotinus II

June 20, 2014 § Leave a comment

“Plato saith that Unity is unspeakable and indescribable.  Nevertheless, we speak and write of it only to stir our higher natures thereby, and so direct them towards this Divine Vision, just as we might point out the road to someone who desireth to traverse it.  The teaching itself goeth only so far as is requisite to point out the Path and to guide one thereon; the attaining of the Vision is the task of each one alone who seeketh it.”

Plotinus VI. ix. 4
