The mystical truth

The mystical truth which is realized in the sage is virtual in the folk. If the folk are the field, the sage is the fruit of the tree which grows in the center of it, a fruit which, even as it takes its place in the eternal domain of God’s attributes, also cyclically returns to the fields from which it grew, via its seed, to propagate wisdom.

Charles Upton in Folk Metaphysics p. 54.
