Note on Analogy


The analogical language about God might facilitate the understanding of divinity.

However, any analogy fails to fulfill the expectations of those who want to be closer to divinity and then to believe in God. They wait for a release from downgraded realities and are forced to revisit them under the guise of the analogical terms.

Because of their eager wish to believe, most of them undertake such a failure as faith.

As a consequence, the believers rarely reveal what should be a higher state of consciousness. On the contrary, they often have the certainty of everyone who can fully grasp only small things.
