Taking the general form of an interpretation of Genesis, it far outstrips such apparent confines, touching among other matters upon the meaning of the New Testament and, from the first sentence, leading to the heart of the universal experience of all mystics: When we consider the visible world with its essence, and consider the life of the creatures, then we find therein the likeness of the invisible, spiritual world, which is hidden in the visible world as the soul in the body; and we see thereby that the hidden God is nigh unto all and through all, and yet wholly hidden to the visible essence.

Jacob Boehme's Mysterium Magnum, part one
All on board! The Reason of the outward Man says; whence is it, that God has not revealed the Creation of the World unto man; that Moses, and the children of God have written so little there-of, seeing it is the Greatest and most principal work, whereon the main depends. Dear Reason smell into your own bosom; of what does it savor: Contemplate your own mind; after what does it long; likely after the cunning delusions of the Devil: Had he not known this ground, very like he had been yet an angel; had he not seen the magical birth in his high light, the he had not desired to be a selfish Lord and maker in the Essence. Wherefore does God hide his children, which now receive the Spirit of knowledge with the Cross; and cast them into tribulation, and mire of vanity? For certain, therefore, that they might play the tune of Miserere; and continue in Humility; and not sport in this life with the light of nature; else if they should espie, and apprehend what the Divine Magick is: Then they might also desire to imitate the Devil, as Lucifer did, for which cause it is hid from them: And neither Moses, or any other, dare write clearer thereof, until the beginning of the Creation beholds the End of the World in it self : And then it must stand open. And therefore let none blame us: For the time is come about: That Moses puts his veil away from his eyes, which he hung before his face when he spoke with Israel: After the Lord had spoken with him: Moses desired to see it: In that he said, Lord if I have found grace in thy sight: Let me see thy face: But the Lord would not; and said: Thou shall see my back part: For none can see my face. Now the Eye of God was in Moses, and in the Saints.
