According to Paracelsus, "the sumum of theological and philosophical truths is contained in the religion of the two lights, the light of grace and the light of nature". We have wanted to follow the lessons of this Renaissance genius, and to order the principles, the grace or mystic and the nature of chemistry.

"The path of love is the acid test. The God-fearing distance themselves from him. Those who venture into the fire, reach the eternal blessing. Those who remain far from him, watching, are burned by the flames. Love is priceless; it can only be gained in the price of death. Those who life in order to die, those accomplish it; as they have shed all thought of self". (Gujarati Hymn in a Treasury of Traditional Wisdom by W. Perry)

"God the Father is the metaphysical, supercelestial sun; the Second person is the light; and the Third is fiery love , or a divine heat proceeding from both. Now without the presence of this heat there is no reception of the light and by consequence no influx from the Father of Lights. For this love is the medium which unites the lover to that which is beloved". (T. Vaughan , Anthroposophia Theomagica)

"It is the water of grace that melts the mortified heart and separates in us pure life from the filth of death. It is the fire of love that fertilizes the purified heart and that multiplies it in the glory of God". ( L. Cattiaux, The Message Rediscovered 22, 58)

"What a man loves , he is that." ( St. Augustine ) If he loves a stone, he is that stone, if he loves a man, he is that man, if he loves God, no, no I don't dare to say more; if I were to say that he is God, they could stone me. I do nothing more than teach you the scriptures". (Maister Eckhart, in a Treasury of Traditional Wisdom by W. Perry)

"The love for God in a man is God" (Maxim of the Spanish alumbrados, XV century)
