Although conceived through you in time, it really is begotten and given through God past time, in eternity past all photographs. it's possible you'll ask, 'Since my mind is divested of its traditional job and not has any photograph or motion of its personal, the place is its help? For it should always locate lodgement someplace: the powers continually search to lock on anything and act on it, no matter if or not it's reminiscence, mind or will. ' Now be aware the reason of this. Intellect's item and lodgement is essence, no longer accident11 yet natural unmixed being in itself. whilst the mind discerns actual being it descends on it, involves leisure on it, seasoned­ nouncing its highbrow notice concerning the item it has seized on. yet, as long as the mind doesn't locate real being and doesn't pene­ trate to the floor, to be able to be capable of say, 'this is that this; it truly is such and never otherwise,' see you later does it stay in a situation of questing and expectation; it doesn't quiet down or leisure, yet labors on, looking, looking forward to, and rejecting. And notwithstanding it might probably might be spend a 12 months or extra investigating a normal fact, to work out what it truly is, it nonetheless has to paintings lengthy back to strip off what it's not. All this time it has not anything to move by means of and makes no pronouncement in any respect, so long as it has now not penetrated to the floor of fact with complete consciousness. as a result, the mind by no means rests during this existence. besides the fact that a lot God could show Him­ self during this lifestyles, but it really is nonetheless as not anything to what He rather is. although fact is there, within the flooring, it's but veiled and hid from the mind. All this whereas, the mind has no help to leisure on within the manner of a changeless item. It nonetheless doesn't relaxation, yet is going on count on­ ing and getting ready for whatever but to turn into recognized, yet up to now hidden. therefore there is not any approach guy can comprehend what God is. yet something he does be aware of: what God isn't really. And this a guy of mind will reject. intervening time the mind, discovering no actual item to aid it, waits as subject awaits shape. simply as subject won't ever leisure till it's full of all kinds, so the mind can't relaxation other than within the Sermon 3 fifty one crucial fact that embraces all issues. in basic terms the essence will fulfill it, and this God withdraws from it step-by-step, to be able to arouse its zeal and l ure it directly to search and take hold of the genuine, groundless reliable, in order that it can be content material with not anything yet ever clamor for the top solid of all. Now it's possible you'll say, 'Oh sir, you acknowledged a lot approximately how all our schools will be quiet, and now you cross developing an outstanding clamor of craving during this quietness. that will be an exceptional moaning and outcry for whatever we have not obtained, and that might be the top of this peace and quiet. no matter if it have been hope or goal or compliment or thanksgiving, or no matter what else the brain may perhaps beget or think - it will no longer be ideal peace or absolute stillness. ' permit me clarify. in case you have thoroughly stripped your self of your individual self, and all issues and each form of attachment, and feature transferred, revamped, and deserted your self to God in utter religion and ideal love, then no matter what is born in you or touches you, inside of or with out, cheerful or sorrowful, bitter or candy, that's not yours, it's altogether your God's to whom you may have deserted your self.
