“ ... ‘material points without extension’ (zero-points) are
... the materials out of which the ‘Gods’
and other invisible powers clothe themselves in bodies ... .”
Madame H. P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, 1888
“THE SONS EXPAND AND CONTRACT
THROUGH THEIR OWN SELVES AND HEARTS;
THEY EMBRACE INFINITUDE. … EACH IS PART OF THE WEB.
EFLECTING THE “SELF-EXISTING LORD” LIKE A MIRROR,
EACH BECOMES IN TURN A WORLD.”
Stanza of Dzyan, from Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine (1888)

BEHOLD HE THEN RESTRICTED HIMSELF, IN THE MIDDLE POINT WHICH IS IN HIM,
PRECISELY IN THE MIDDLE, HE RESTRICTED THE LIGHT.
AND THE LIGHT WAS WITHDRAWN TO THE SIDES AROUND THE MIDDLE POINT.
AND THERE HAVE REMAINED AN EMPTY SPACE, ATMOSPHERE,
AND A VACUUM SURROUNDING THE EXACT MIDDLE POINT.

- Kabbalist Isaac Luria
"The heart must make of itself a hollow space wherein Godliness can be revealed in stages.
Thus the heart (binah) corresponds to the hollow of Creation, … the Vacated Space.
Binah, then, is conceptually the Vacated Space wherein the formation of all the Universe takes place.”

Kabbalist & Judaic scholar, C. Kramer, 1998
"The secret of secrets is the divine spark within each of us.
Remembrance is remembering that which we already know.
It is to get in touch with that divine spark that God has placed within each human being. …
And that divine spark is the secret of secrets. … And it’s within every one of us.
Who we are is far more than who we think we are.

Robert Frager/Sheikh Ragip, psychologist and Sufi (Cott, 2005)
... the divine spark [is] buried deep in every soul. ...
we must leave the physical world of matter far behind and rise to the luminous world above
to attain the divine principle of our superior soul. ...
I ... engraved the symbol of the knowledge of the Initiates: a circle with a point in the center. ...
Understand me once and for all: I am speaking from experience,
for me it is not mere theory, all my life has been based on this symbol of the circle with its central point.
This center which is in us, we must find ... .

Michael Aivanhov, (1976, pp. 25-6)
“The zero-dimension or the point is a limit. This means that we see something as a point,
but we do not know what is concealed behind this point. It may actually be a point,
that is, a body having no dimensions and it may also be a whole world,
but a world so far removed from us or so small that it appears to us a point.
... seven cosmoses related to one another in the ratio of zero to infinity.”

P. D. Ouspensky & G. I. Gurdjieff, 1949
When God created the world, He had to limit Himself. From being Infinity ...
He decided to limit Himself, to become concentrated, and He gathered Himself into a single Point
from which He now projects Himself into the whole universe.

M. Aivanhov, 1977
“I am the Self, O conqueror of sleep, seated in the hearts of all creatures.
I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings.” (10, 20)
“I am that Lord represented as the Supersoul, dwelling in the heart of every embodied being.” (8, 4)

Bhagavad-Gita
“Within the lotus of the heart he dwells, where, like the spokes of a wheel in its hub, the nerves meet. ...
This Self, who understands all, who knows all, and whose glory is manifest in the universe, lives within the lotus of the heart.”

Mundaka Upanishad
"The heart is the treasury in which God's mysteries are stored;
Seek the purpose of both the worlds through the heart, for that is the point of it."

Sufi poet, Lahiji
"... you ... of interior knowledge ... Say, then, from the heart that you are the perfect day
and in you dwells the light that does not fail. ...
hey are the ones who appear in truth since they exist in true and eternal life and speak of the light which is perfect
and filled with the seed of the Father, and which is in his heart and in the pleroma,
while his Spirit rejoices in it and glorifies the one in whom it existed ... “

Christ, Gospel of Truth, (Nag Hammadi Library, Robinson,1981)
"Many seem wide awake to the life without, but asleep to the life within; a
nd though the chamber of their heart is continually visited by the hosts of heaven,
they do not know their own heart; they are not there.”
“... if the heart of man were expanded, it would accommodate the whole universe,
just like a drop in the ocean. The heart can be so large that it can hold the whole universe, all.”

Hazrat Inayat Khan (1982, 1960)
“In this Process of Translation, we pass as if through a point in space,
at the root center of the heart. All awareness converges on that point in a kind of spiral or vortex.
And that point is so small it is without dimensions, or any conceptions, or any objects.
The independent self seems to dissolve in this narrow Passage. ... The Divine Translation is a matter of Transcendence
of separate bodily, emotional, mental, astral, supermental, and egoic states of experience.
It is a Transition through the infinitesimal space of the Heart.”

Adi Da, 1978
