Paul explained 52 1, 4 | daughter, that the guilt is not punished in this finite 53 1, 4 | finite time by any pain which is sustained purely as such. 54 1, 4 | And I say, that the guilt is punished by the pain which 55 1, 4 | punished by the pain which is endured through the desire, 56 1, 4 | desire and every virtue is of value, and has life in 57 1, 4 | follows His virtues, that is, His Footprints. In this 58 1, 4 | Wherefore I reply that this is the way, if you will arrive 59 1, 4 | knowledge you will draw all that is necessary. No virtue, my 60 1, 4 | charity, and humility, which is the foster-mother and nurse 61 1, 4 | being, as you will learn, is derived from Me, since I 62 1, 4 | follows immediately, that it is right for you, and My other 63 1, 4 | prayers of My servants, is that I give them light, 64 1, 4 | world to show them what it is, so that, feeling its diverse 65 1, 4 | their native country, which is the Eternal Life. And so 66 1, 4 | receive remission, this is indeed the truth, that, 67 1, 4 | which I have told you, that is, by the light of conscience, 68 1, 4 | other things, satisfaction is made for their guilt; for, 69 1, 4 | use of his intellect.

It is general because you are 81 1, 6 | the sweet desires that he is bound to offer for him to 82 1, 6 | Me. And every evil also, is done by means of his neighbor, 83 1, 6 | offered to Me for him. This is an assistance which is owed 84 1, 6 | This is an assistance which is owed in general to every 85 1, 6 | creature; but its usefulness is more particular when it 86 1, 6 | more particular when it is done to those who are close 87 1, 6 | injury. The mental injury is already done when the sinner 88 1, 6 | and hatred of virtue, that is, pleasure from sensual self-love, 89 1, 6 | sensual will. Sometimes it is seen that he brings forth 90 1, 6 | His general cruelty is to see himself and other 91 1, 6 | privation of grace, and so cruel is he that he reminds neither 92 1, 6 | cruelty still further, that is, not content with not giving 93 1, 6 | abandon virtue for vice; this is cruelty towards his neighbors, 94 1, 6 | creatures; sometimes this is done by the arbitrary use 95 1, 6 | love or in conversation, is poisoned. ~ 96 1, 6 | than he; and in this way is injury done to him. And 97 1, 6 | all kinds of people, sin is always produced against 98 1, 6 | secret or open. A secret sin is when you deprive your neighbor 99 1, 6 | to give him; an open sin is where you perform positive 100 1, 6 | have related to you. It is, therefore, indeed the truth 101 1, 6 | every sin done against Me, is done through the medium 102 1, 7 | our neighbor, and how it is that virtues differ to such 103 1, 7 | which I exposed to you, that is, because men are deprived 104 1, 7 | affection towards the neighbor, is the principle and foundation 105 1, 7 | was in the neighbor, that is to say in the love of him, 106 1, 7 | obtained without charity, which is the pure love of Me. ~ 107 1, 7 | the perverse law, which is bound up in her members, 108 1, 7 | time with a medium, that is to say, without the medium 109 1, 7 | of love, she immediately is delivered of fruit for her 110 1, 7 | him issues from Me. This is the means which I have given 111 1, 7 | helps with doctrine, that is, with words, giving sincere 112 1, 7 | such a different way, that is to say not all to one, but 113 1, 7 | another, it so happens that it is impossible to have one, 114 1, 7 | chief of the others, that is to say, to one I will give 115 1, 7 | making an act of love. It is true, however, that that 116 1, 7 | nothing so far as grace is concerned. See then, that 117 1, 7 | love, for in the love of Me is fulfilled and completed 118 1, 7 | in his state of life, who is bound to Me with this love." ~ 119 1, 8 | consider well, humility is proved on pride in this 120 1, 8 | brought forth against one who is faithful to Me, do him any 121 1, 8 | he sees that the infidel is unfaithful, because he is 122 1, 8 | is unfaithful, because he is without hope in Me, and 123 1, 8 | his own sensuality, which is all that he loves. My faithful 124 1, 8 | hope. The virtue of faith is proved in these and other 125 1, 8 | neighbor, and so, justice is not diminished by the wicked 126 1, 8 | wicked man's injustice, but is rather proved, that is to 127 1, 8 | but is rather proved, that is to say, the justice of a 128 1, 8 | to you, that, not only is virtue proved in those who 129 1, 8 | benevolence, and that this is by virtue of the love and 130 1, 8 | and perfect patience which is in him, who sustains the 131 2, 1 | means of the body, that is, with an exterior act, or 132 2, 1 | penance with discretion, that is to say, if her affection 133 2, 1 | demonstrate that the will is dead, and continually slays 134 2, 1 | perform her penance, that is, she should place her principal 135 2, 1 | This virtue of discretion is no other than a true knowledge 136 2, 1 | Me, and in this knowledge is virtue rooted. Discretion 137 2, 1 | virtue rooted. Discretion is the only child of self-knowledge, 138 2, 1 | branches, and its root, is the ground of humility, 139 2, 1 | of humility, in which it is planted, which humility 140 2, 1 | planted, which humility is the foster-mother and nurse 141 2, 1 | that the root of discretion is a real knowledge of self 142 2, 1 | knowledge of self, that is, on true humility, for, 143 2, 1 | on pride, as discretion is on humility. ~ 144 2, 1 | vainglory, and that which is really her own she imputes 145 2, 1 | in Me and in her neighbor is cause of scandal to her. 146 2, 1 | they have rendered what is due to Me and to themselves, 147 2, 1 | he does to his neighbor is done discreetly and lovingly, 148 2, 2 | virtues stand together? It is, as if a circle were drawn 149 2, 2 | of the circle. The tree is nourished in the earth contained 150 2, 2 | same way, that the soul is a tree existing by love, 151 2, 2 | life, but only of death. It is necessary then, that the 152 2, 2 | root of this tree, that is the affection of the soul, 153 2, 2 | true self-knowledge which is contained in Me, who have 154 2, 2 | knowledge of yourself and of Me is found in the earth of true 155 2, 2 | of true humility, which is as wide as the diameter 156 2, 2 | diameter of the circle, that is as the knowledge of self 157 2, 2 | heart of the tree, that is the affection of love which 158 2, 2 | affection of love which is in the soul, and the patience, 159 2, 2 | term of her being, that is Myself, her God, who am 160 2, 3 | seek infinite works, that is an infinite perfection of 161 2, 3 | has issued from the mouth, is no more, unless it have 162 2, 3 | forth virtue in truth; that is, unless the finite operation, 163 2, 3 | pleasant to Me. And this is because such a work would 164 2, 3 | time, and also because it is often profitable that the 165 2, 3 | order of her director, it is well; since, if she continued 166 2, 3 | self-will, knowing, that is to say, how to keep the 167 2, 3 | this slaying of the will is that due which, as I told 168 2, 3 | renders to the soul, that is to say, hatred and disgust 169 2, 3 | by self-knowledge. This is the knife which slays and 170 2, 3 | without which the soul is worth nothing. And this 171 2, 3 | neighbor, on the contrary, is ordered in certain conditions. 172 2, 3 | rather indiscreet, for it is not lawful to perform even 173 2, 3 | This is the supreme office of discretion 174 2, 3 | should pay her debts, that is, should love Me with an 175 2, 3 | be useful to others. This is St. Paul's counsel to you 176 2, 3 | Because, when perfection is not in the soul, everything 177 2, 3 | for itself and for others is imperfect. It would not, 178 2, 3 | The more serious the fault is in such a case, the less 179 2, 3 | takes away ignorance, and is the condiment of every instrument 180 2, 3 | virtue. Holy discretion is a prudence which cannot 181 2, 3 | from Heaven to earth, that is, from knowledge of Me to 182 2, 3 | with unarmed hands, that is through much endurance, 183 2, 3 | his fame of paternity. It is the same with Me, who am 184 2, 3 | showing her child to him who is in need, both in general 185 2, 3 | virtue at all; and this is also true of the vices, 186 2, 4 | and indignity. Her dignity is that of her creation, seeing 187 2, 4 | creation, seeing that she is the image of God, and this 188 2, 4 | her own indignity, which is the consequence of her own 189 2, 4 | and, as fire grows when it is fed with wood, so grew the 190 2, 4 | the strength of Him who is the Supreme Strength, it 191 2, 4 | grant them mercy. For what is it to me if I have life, 192 2, 4 | cover Your spouse, when it is my own sins, and not those 193 2, 4 | with Your kindness, that is to say, we all became Your 194 2, 5 | of the Holy Church (that is to say the Christian religion) 195 2, 5 | feed themselves, but it is also their duty to feed 196 2, 5 | receive it, death; that is to say, the precious Blood 197 2, 5 | its finite nature, that is in the flesh of Adam, but 198 2, 5 | it remaining behind, that is an inclination to sin, and 199 2, 5 | which remains when a man is healed of a wound. In this 200 2, 5 | the great Physician, that is to say, of My only-begotten 201 2, 5 | her suckling, because she is grown up and strong, and 202 2, 5 | and strong, and the child is not fit to endure its bitterness. 203 2, 5 | generated by them. But this mark is removed from the soul, though 204 2, 5 | Holy Baptism, original sin is taken away from her, and 205 2, 5 | away from her, and grace is infused into her, and that 206 2, 5 | corruption, as has been said, is indeed a source of weakness, 207 2, 5 | Then the vessel of the soul is disposed to receive and 208 2, 5 | when the time of discretion is come, the soul can, by her 209 2, 5 | pleases her will; and so great is this liberty that man has, 210 2, 6 | How sin is more gravely punished after 211 2, 6 | redemption took place -- that is, before the stain of Adam' 212 2, 6 | had been taken away. It is right that he who receives 213 2, 6 | with the human nature. This is the debt which they have 214 2, 6 | they have incurred -- that is to say, the treasure of 215 2, 6 | A false Christian is punished more than a pagan, 216 2, 6 | consumes him more, that is, afflicts him more, and, 217 2, 6 | conscience, though, in truth, he is not consumed, because the 218 2, 6 | existence. Therefore guilt is more gravely punished after 219 2, 6 | Blood of My Son. But there is a remedy with which I appease 220 2, 6 | appease My wrath -- that is to say, by means of My servants, 221 2, 7 | only-begotten Son, and this is the truth. I wish that you, 222 2, 7 | not fulfilled. This truth is that I have created man 223 2, 7 | be drowned, which flood is the tempestuous sea of this 224 2, 7 | obligations the creature is to Me, and how ignorant 225 2, 7 | Me, and how ignorant he is, not to take the remedy 226 2, 8 | from Heaven to earth, that is, that the earth of your 227 2, 8 | the earth of your humanity is joined to the greatness 228 2, 8 | angels. And observe, that it is not enough, in order that 229 2, 9 | for which reason, my heart is bursting, and yet cannot 230 2, 10 | being lifted on high, yet it is not separated from the earth; 231 2, 10 | from Heaven to earth; this is through the union which 232 2, 10 | thing with Me. Then the soul is filled with love, seeing 233 2, 10 | out to the third -- that is -- to the Mouth, where she 234 2, 10 | may reach the last, which is lifted on high, so that 235 2, 10 | venom of sin. This Bridge is lifted on high, and yet, 236 2, 10 | earth, for the Divine nature is united and kneaded into 237 2, 10 | traham ad me ipsum,' that is, 'If I am lifted on high 238 2, 10 | things to Him. And this is to be understood in two 239 2, 10 | that, when the heart of man is drawn by the affection of 240 2, 10 | love, as I have said, it is drawn together with all 241 2, 10 | powers of his soul, that is, with the Memory, the Intellect, 242 2, 10 | effect of love, because love is lifted on high, following 243 2, 10 | being drawn, everything else is drawn with him, because 244 2, 11 | How this Bridge is built of stones which signify 245 2, 11 | virtues; and how on the Bridge is a hostelry where food is 246 2, 11 | is a hostelry where food is given to the travelers; 247 2, 11 | This Bridge is built of stones, so that, 248 2, 11 | building with His Blood. That is, His Blood was united with 249 2, 11 | the foundation, for there is no virtue which has not 250 2, 11 | grace, but from Him, that is, without following the footsteps 251 2, 11 | of Divine justice, for he is sheltered by the mercy which 252 2, 11 | you see that the Bridge is walled and roofed with Mercy. 253 2, 11 | roofed with Mercy. His also is the Hostelry in the Garden 254 2, 11 | arrives at the door which is part of the Bridge, at which 255 2, 11 | by Him,' and so indeed it is. Therefore He says of Himself 256 2, 11 | says of Himself that He is the Road, and this is the 257 2, 11 | He is the Road, and this is the truth, and I have already 258 2, 11 | already shown you that He is a Road in the form of the 259 2, 11 | Bridge. And He says that He is the Truth, and so He is, 260 2, 11 | is the Truth, and so He is, because He is united with 261 2, 11 | and so He is, because He is united with Me who am the 262 2, 11 | the darkness, because He is light without any falsehood. 263 2, 11 | Wherefore, if the affection is not placed on the stones, 264 2, 11 | placed on the stones, but is placed, with disordinate 265 2, 11 | loves pass by, and yet he is passing himself continually 266 2, 11 | gladly retain himself (that is his life, and the things 267 2, 11 | are sons of the Devil, who is the Father of Lies; and, 268 2, 11 | Truth and Falsehood, that is, My road which is Truth, 269 2, 11 | that is, My road which is Truth, and the Devil's which 270 2, 11 | Truth, and the Devil's which is Falsehood." ~ 271 2, 12 | both of these roads, that is the Bridge and the River, 272 2, 12 | the Bridge and the River, is fatiguing; and of the delight 273 2, 12 | Wherefore every good deed is rewarded, and every fault 274 2, 12 | rewarded, and every fault is punished. The tongue would 275 2, 12 | eternal life. He, therefore, is a fool indeed, who despises 276 2, 12 | about this Bridge, how it is, and this I have told you 277 2, 12 | And thus, you see that He is the Truth, made in the way 278 2, 12 | that I have shown you, that is -- by the union of height 279 2, 13 | arose from the earth, that is, from among the conversation 280 2, 13 | here any longer, for He is seated at the right hand 281 2, 13 | I sent the Master, that is the Holy Spirit, who came 282 2, 13 | His own clemency, which is the essence of the Holy 283 2, 13 | essence of the Holy Spirit. He is one thing with Me, the Father, 284 2, 13 | upon this doctrine, which is the way made for you by 285 2, 13 | announce this road, that is, the doctrine of Christ 286 2, 13 | mind of your hearers, that is, that they may know that 287 2, 13 | the human nature, for this is the truth. ~ 288 2, 13 | remained of all this, and where is the road to be found? I 289 2, 13 | found? I will tell you, that is, I will rather tell those 290 2, 13 | witnesses to confess the Truth, is found in the mystical body 291 2, 13 | inordinate self-love. It is, indeed, the truth that 292 2, 13 | truth that His doctrine is true, and has remained like 293 2, 13 | through His doctrine, He is the Way, the Truth, and 294 2, 13 | Truth, and the Life; that is, the Bridge which leads 295 2, 13 | the height of Heaven. This is what He meant when He said, ' 296 2, 13 | shall return to you'; that is to say, 'My Father sent 297 2, 13 | Father and return; that is, that when the Holy Spirit 298 2, 13 | Holy Spirit shall come, who is called the Paraclete, He 299 2, 13 | to follow it, because it is firm and stable, and proceeds 300 2, 13 | the Bridge as it actually is, and the doctrine, which 301 2, 13 | and the doctrine, which is one and the same thing with 302 2, 13 | where this road of Truth is, and where stand those who 303 2, 13 | Truth, promised you, that is, to show you the perfect, 304 2, 13 | underneath it, because underneath is not the way of truth, but 305 2, 14 | God, exclaimed, "How great is the Eternal Mercy with which 306 2, 14 | by which Your clemency is known in all Your creatures, 307 2, 14 | Your Mercy shines, that is, in Your saints. If I turn 308 2, 15 | that passes underneath, is called by God the tree of 309 2, 15 | but know, that My mercy is without any comparison, 310 2, 15 | see, because your sight is imperfect, and My mercy 311 2, 15 | itself, but only when it is moved and lifted by others, 312 2, 15 | Truth, because their feeling is dead, that is, their intellect 313 2, 15 | their feeling is dead, that is, their intellect has no 314 2, 15 | sensuality, and so their will is dead to My will because 315 2, 15 | are dead as far as grace is concerned. For the soul 316 2, 15 | but only so far as she is helped by Me. It is true 317 2, 15 | she is helped by Me. It is true indeed, that every 318 2, 15 | wishing to govern the world, is governed by that which is 319 2, 15 | is governed by that which is not, that is by sin, for 320 2, 15 | that which is not, that is by sin, for sin in itself 321 2, 15 | by sin, for sin in itself is nothing, and such men have 322 2, 15 | the height of pride, which is nourished by their own sensitive 323 2, 15 | sensitive self-love. Its branch is their own impatience, and 324 2, 15 | destroy the soul of him who is a tree of death, because 325 2, 15 | from grace. Inside the tree is nourished the worm of conscience, 326 2, 15 | man lives in mortal sin, is blinded by self-love, and 327 2, 15 | and the miserable soul is full of ingratitude, whence 328 2, 17 | How the fruit of others is avarice; and of the evils 329 2, 17 | and thus avarice, which is immediately combined with 330 2, 17 | on from bad to worse. It is a fire which always germinates 331 2, 17 | does not belong to it. It is a root which has many branches, 332 2, 17 | branches, and the principal one is that which makes a man care 333 2, 17 | the deceitful heart that is neither pure nor liberal, 334 2, 17 | neither pure nor liberal, but is double, making a man show 335 2, 17 | it produces envy, which is a worm that is always gnawing, 336 2, 17 | envy, which is a worm that is always gnawing, and does 337 2, 18 | like thieves, steal what is Mine, and give it to the 338 2, 18 | Truth: 'The Kingdom of God is among you.' But they knew 339 2, 19 | virtues, because their heart is rotten, and, having spoiled 340 2, 19 | them, and bad things, that is to say disorderly living, 341 2, 19 | good to them. Oh, how blind is the human generation in 342 2, 19 | Sin is nothing. You, then, have 343 2, 19 | disordinate affection; and it is for this injustice and false 344 2, 19 | judgment that the world is reproved, and will be reproved 345 2, 20 | how one of these reproofs is continuous. ~ 346 2, 20 | the disciples, who, as it is said, being fortified by 347 2, 20 | Then the Holy Spirit, who is one thing with Me and with 348 2, 20 | This is that continuous reproof 349 2, 20 | tongues of his servants, that is to say, of those who pass 350 2, 20 | river in iniquity. This is that sweet reproof that 351 2, 20 | reproved me,' because the truth is revealed to them showing 352 2, 20 | they cannot say, 'the angel is a blessed spirit who cannot 353 2, 20 | God now as then. My power is not weakened, and cannot 354 2, 20 | come to judgment!' That is to say, 'You, who are dead 355 2, 20 | along the underway which is a running stream, and so 356 2, 21 | reproof, dearest daughter, is indeed a condemnation, for 357 2, 21 | can be no remedy, for she is at the extremity of death, 358 2, 21 | extremity of death, where is the worm of conscience, 359 2, 21 | begins to see, and therefore is gnawed with remorse, seeing 360 2, 21 | damnation. And then she is reproved cruelly by My Justice 361 2, 21 | greater than My mercy. This is that sin which is neither 362 2, 21 | This is that sin which is neither pardoned here nor 363 2, 21 | depreciating My mercy. Therefore is this last sin graver to 364 2, 21 | this false judgment, which is to have held their sin to 365 2, 21 | render to Me that which is Mine, and to themselves 366 2, 21 | to themselves that which is theirs. For to Me, they 367 2, 22 | My daughter, the tongue is not sufficient to narrate 368 2, 22 | proceeds the second, that is love of reputation, whence 369 2, 22 | proceeds the third, that is pride, with injustice and 370 2, 22 | other torments. The first is, that they see themselves 371 2, 22 | the vision of Me, which is such pain to them, that, 372 2, 22 | unceasingly, seeing that the soul is deprived of Me, and of the 373 2, 22 | which vision of the Devil is the third pain and redoubles 374 2, 22 | know themselves more, that is to say, they know that, 375 2, 22 | ceases to burn. And the sight is more painful to them, because 376 2, 22 | him in his own form, which is so horrible that the heart 377 2, 22 | know well how horrible he is, because, by Divine justice, 378 2, 22 | horrible to the soul that is deprived of Me, and more 379 2, 22 | fourth torment that they have is the fire. This fire burns 380 2, 22 | be consumed, because it is not a material thing that 381 2, 23 | the third reproof which is made on the Day of Judgment. ~ 382 2, 23 | the third reproof which is on the Last Day of Judgment. 383 2, 23 | pain of the miserable soul is renewed and increased by 384 2, 23 | face changes, because He is unchangeable, being one 385 2, 23 | that, as the sun which is so bright, appears all darkness 386 2, 23 | healthy eye light (and it is not the defect of the light 387 2, 23 | defect of the eye which is infirm), so will the condemned 388 2, 24 | And their hatred is so great that they cannot 389 2, 24 | of man ended, free-will is bound. Wherefore they cannot 390 2, 25 | Me, and that measure that is measured to her. She always 391 2, 25 | loves Me, and her desire is not in vain -- being hungry, 392 2, 25 | vain -- being hungry, she is satisfied, and being satisfied, 393 2, 25 | according to his measure, that is that, with that measure 394 2, 25 | which they have come to Me, is it measured to them. Because 395 2, 25 | themselves alone, for it is not so, but it is shared 396 2, 25 | for it is not so, but it is shared by all the proved 397 2, 25 | need to fill it, because it is full, but they have an exultation, 398 2, 25 | joyousness in themselves, which is refreshed by the knowledge 399 2, 25 | see that, by My mercy, she is raised from the earth with 400 2, 25 | because their free-will is bound in the bond of love, 401 2, 25 | any more. And their will is so united with Mine, that 402 2, 25 | The desire of the blessed is to see My honor in you wayfarers, 403 2, 25 | Me for you, which desire is fulfilled by Me, when you 404 2, 25 | yet fulfilled, no bliss is thereby lacking to them. 405 2, 25 | be, because no perfection is lacking to them. So it is 406 2, 25 | is lacking to them. So it is not the body that gives 407 2, 25 | quitted. For, as the soul is made immortal, stayed and 408 2, 25 | having lost heaviness, is made fine and light. Wherefore, 409 2, 25 | of the soul, which virtue is of Me, given to her by grace, 410 2, 25 | The eye of your intellect is not sufficient to see, nor 411 2, 25 | pain, because no bliss is lacking to them, the soul 412 2, 25 | dwell in Him, because He is one thing with Me. But their 413 2, 25 | brought with them, that is, they cannot do any meritorious 414 2, 25 | that the transformation is not in His Face, when He 415 2, 26 | of the damned. For this is another of their pains, 416 2, 26 | of the righteous, which is to them an increase of pain, 417 2, 26 | damnation of the damned is an increase of exultation 418 2, 26 | in My goodness. As light is seen better near darkness, 419 2, 26 | the pith of the tree, that is the soul, and also the bark 420 2, 26 | the bark outside, which is the body. They will be reproached 421 2, 26 | done for their neighbor, as is contained in the Holy Gospel. 422 2, 26 | of death, the soul only is reproved, but, at the General 423 2, 26 | General Judgment, the soul is reproved together with the 424 2, 26 | Every work, good or bad, is done by means of the body. 425 2, 26 | vision of their nature (that is, the humanity of Christ), 426 2, 26 | virtue. As in the mirror is represented the face of 427 2, 26 | the man, so in the body is represented the fruit of 428 2, 26 | go by the lower way, that is, by the river, not turning 429 2, 26 | doctrine of the Devil, who is the Father of Lies; and 430 2, 26 | of Lies; and this Devil is their Door, through which 431 2, 26 | keeping by the way above, that is by the Bridge, follow the 432 2, 26 | of Truth, and this Truth is the Door, and therefore 433 2, 26 | the Father but by Me.' He is the Door and the Way through 434 2, 26 | enter the Sea Pacific. It is the contrary for those who 435 2, 26 | the water of death. And it is to this that the Devil calls 436 2, 27 | or of glory, before she is separated from the body. ~ 437 2, 27 | Devil, dearest daughter, is the instrument of My Justice 438 2, 27 | creature can move, because it is yours, given by Me. You 439 2, 27 | according as you please. It is an arm, which, if you place 440 2, 27 | hands of the Devil, that is, if he do not consent to 441 2, 27 | the eye of his intellect is opened to see My love which 442 2, 27 | knowledge of Me, which knowledge is more perfectly acquired 443 2, 27 | knows Me in his will, which is fortified by My goodness, 444 2, 27 | temptations, for the devil is weak, and by himself can 445 2, 27 | virtue may be proved, for it is not proved except by its 446 2, 27 | You see, then, that he is my Minister to torture the 447 2, 27 | in the soul. Not that it is the intention of the Devil 448 2, 27 | you see, then, how great is the foolishness of men in 449 2, 27 | left the mortal body, that is, before the soul be separated 450 2, 27 | perfect ones, but, in them, it is imperfect, for, because 451 2, 27 | the water of death, that is, to that which he has, and, 452 2, 27 | relishes good, though it is true that the soul, blinded 453 2, 27 | not know and discern what is true good, and of profit 454 2, 27 | that following Me, that is, walking by the way of the 455 2, 27 | Bridge, the Word, My Son, is great toil, they draw back, 456 2, 27 | fearing the thorn. This is because they are blinded 457 2, 27 | passed the thorn, which is the deliberation of the 458 2, 27 | deliberation, before it is made, is a thorn which appears 459 2, 27 | deliberation, before it is made, is a thorn which appears to 460 2, 27 | have shown them what it is to love anything without 461 2, 27 | without pain, but their pain is alleviated. And because -- 462 2, 28 | wish to tell you how it is only they themselves who 463 2, 28 | their minds are free, that is, they do not feel the weariness 464 2, 28 | the pain; for their will is accorded with Mine, and 465 2, 28 | accorded with Mine, and it is the will that gives trouble 466 2, 28 | eternal life. Do you know what is the special good of the 467 2, 28 | of the blessed ones? It is having their desire filled 468 2, 28 | of the body, her desire is full, for, desiring to see 469 2, 28 | sees Me, in which vision is her bliss; and seeing she 470 2, 28 | and, in tasting Me, she is satisfied, and her desire 471 2, 28 | satisfied, and her desire is fulfilled, that is, the 472 2, 28 | desire is fulfilled, that is, the desire she had to see 473 2, 28 | And as I told you pain is far from the desire, and 474 2, 28 | and knowledge their will is fulfilled, for they have 475 2, 28 | but know that the will is satisfied in seeing and 476 2, 28 | knowledge, the intellect (which is the eye of the soul) illuminated 477 2, 28 | the pupil of the intellect is faith, and if the soul has 478 2, 28 | the mind of the creature, is dead. Wherefore, the will 479 2, 28 | not being there, neither is there any pain. They bear 480 2, 28 | infinite pain, because it is against Me, who am Infinite 481 2, 28 | that all labor in this life is small, on account of the 482 2, 28 | shortness of time. Time is as the point of a needle 483 2, 28 | when time has passed labor is ended, therefore you see 484 2, 28 | therefore you see that the labor is small. They endure with 485 2, 28 | heart, because their heart is drawn out of them and united 486 2, 28 | the affection of love. It is a good truth then that these 487 2, 28 | it was to be found, that is in the Word, My only-begotten 488 2, 29 | Inestimable Love, great is the delusion of Your creatures. 489 2, 29 | creatures. I would that, when it is pleasing to Your Goodness, 490 2, 30 | figured in the Bridge, that is, in the Son of GOD, signify 491 2, 30 | You know that every evil is founded in self-love, and 492 2, 30 | self-love, and that self-love is a cloud that takes away 493 2, 30 | light of faith, and one is not lost without the other. 494 2, 30 | and will. The intellect is the most noble part of the 495 2, 30 | noble part of the soul, and is moved by the affection, 496 2, 30 | the hand of love -- that is, the affection -- fills 497 2, 30 | on another, and the soul is nourished in the life of 498 2, 30 | love something, because she is made of love, and, by love, 499 2, 30 | the food on which I feed is love.'
