The poetry of Angelus Silesius consists largely of epigrams in the form of alexandrine couplets —the style that dominated German poetry and mystical literature during the Baroque era.
Silesius delighted specially in the subtle paradoxes of mysticism. The essence of God, for instance, he held to be love; God, he said, can love nothing inferior to himself; but he cannot be an object of love to himself without going out, so to speak, of himself, without manifesting his infinity in a finite form; in other words, by becoming man. God and man are therefore essentially one. Silesius's poetry directs the reader to seek a path toward a desired spiritual state, an eternal stillness, by eschewing material or physical needs and the human will.
It requires an understanding of God that is informed by the ideas of apophatic theology and of antithesis and paradox. However, in the introduction to Der Cherubinischer Wandersmann , he explained his poetry especially its paradoxes within the framework of Catholic orthodoxy and denied pantheism which would have run afoul of Catholic doctrine. Several of the poems of Silesius have been used or adapted as hymns used in Protestant and Catholic services.
In many early Lutheran and Protestant hymnals , these lyrics were attributed to "anonymous", rather than admit they were penned by the Catholic Silesius, known for his criticism and advocacy against Protestantism. Likewise, several truly anonymous works were later misattributed to Silesius, thanks to the same ambiguous initials.
During the 18th Century, they were frequently in use in the Lutheran, Catholic, and Moravian Churches. In a series of lectures entitled Siete Noches "Seven Nights" , Argentine writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges — remarks that the essence of poetry can be encapsulated in a single line from Silesius.

I will end with a great line by the poet who, in the seventeenth century, took the strangely real and poetic name of Angelus Silesius. It is the summary of all I have said tonight — except that I have said it by means of reasoning and simulated reasoning. I will say it first in Spanish and then in German:.
Angelus Silesius - Wikipedia
This same line was often referenced in the work of Martin Heidegger — who building on the work of Leibniz and Hegel explored mysticism in many of his works, in which he defines a theory of truth as phenomenal and defying any rational explanation. Ich bin wie Gott, und Gott wie ich. I am like God and God like me. I am as Large as God, He is as small as I.
He cannot above me, nor I beneath him be. However, the context of this line in the film does not match the context intended by Silesius. The character of Cady uses it to emphasize dramatically to his intended victims the power of his individual will and his god-like ability to exact a violent vengeance. The context intended by Silesius was of man's realization through his spiritual potential for perfection that he was of the same substance with God in the sense of the mystical divine union or theosis —that experience of direct communion of love between the believer and God as equals.
