6. For he cannot be heard with ears, nor seen with eyes, nor expressed in words; but only in mind and heart.

7. But first thou must tear to pieces and break through the garment thou wearest; the web of Ignorance, the foundation of all Mischief; the bond of Corruption.

Corpus Hermeticum Eighth Book

Commentary – God cannot be experienced, only through discernment (nous) can God (gnosis) be realised via (Ousia code word heart).
The universal mind (Sophia) is the garment.

Notes : I translate Nous as discernment but the ancients use divine mind as a meaning to hide the truth from readers. God is formless and therefore cannot have a mind as this would imply God had a body. The universal mind covers and hides the God nature.
