Example text

Life is a dream, and to think of God is to awaken; and it is to be in Heaven already here below.  The consciousness of the sage is founded upon these three points of reference, whether directly or in an indirect and implicit manner through “remembrance of God”.  Hence remain next to God, and Paradise shall be there where you are. — 41 — 6 There are two moments in life which are everything, and these are the present moment, when we are free to choose what we would be, and the moment of death when we have no longer any choice and when the decision belongs to God.

God asks of us that which He has given us, namely the qualities we bear in our own depths, in our deiform substance; man must “become what he is”; every being is fundamentally Being as such. 6 Virtue is the conformity of the soul to the divine Model and to the spiritual work; conformity or participation.  Virtue is the exteriorization of the pure heart. 6 Virtue consists in allowing free passage, in the soul, to the Beauty of God. — 17 — 6 To strive for perfection: not because we wish to be perfect for our own glory, but because perfection is beautiful and imperfection ugly; or because virtue is self-evident—that is to say, in conformity with the Real.

In faith we are outside time. 6 The divine archetype of faith is the “yes” which God says to Himself; it is the Logos which on the one hand mirrors the Divine Infinity, and on the other hand refracts it. — 15 — 6 If faith is a mystery, it is because its nature is inexpressible to the degree that it is profound, for it is not possible to convey fully by words this vision that is still blind, and this blindness that already sees. 6 The unbeliever, on earth, believes only what he sees; the believer, in Heaven, sees all that he believes.
