I think I read or heard somewhere that our life is hid in Christ, or in God (for that is the same thing), or that our life is Christ.130 (The exact form of this131 is little to my purpose.)
130 Colossians iii, 3. Gracián deletes "for that . . . my purpose" and supplies text and source in the margin.
131 [Lit.: "Whether this be so or not." But the meaning is clear from the context.]
