Whitehead– from Process and Reality

Alfred North Whithead 15 February 1861 – 30 December 1947

Alfred North Whitehead
1861 – 1947

But the principle of universal relativity is not to be stopped at the consequent nature of God. This nature itself passes into the temporal world according to its gradation of relevance to the various concrescent occasions…. For the perfected actuality passes back into the temporal world, and qualifies this world so that each temporal actuality includes it as an immediate fact of relevant experience.  For the kingdom of heaven is within us today. The action of the fourth phase is the love of God  for the world. It is the particular providence for particular occasions. What is done in the world is transformed into a reality in heaven, and the reality in heaven passes back into the world.  By reason of this reciprocal relation, the love in the world passes into the love in heaven, and  floods back again into the world. In this sense, God is the great companion— the fellow-sufferer who
understands.
