The Open Confession of His Love-Secrets

Consciousness of God is self-consciousness, knowledge of God is self-knowledge.

Whatever is God to a man, that is his heart and soul; and conversely, God is the manifested inward nature, the expressed self of a man,–religion the solemn unveiling of a man’s hidden treasures, the revelation of his intimate thoughts, the open confession of his love-secrets.

Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity
