There is no contradiction between the
personal and impersonal aspects of the Godhead. The Impersonal
Divine in its creative play assumes various personalities as the
Creator, Preserver, and Destroyer of the universe.
These personalities may be either male or
female, through the great forms of the Divine Father and Divine
Mother. Yet the Divine is beyond self and other as the sole and
Self-existent Reality. In that impersonal and uncreate Existence is
true immorality and perfect peace.
