What matters most is a good and ready will to obey God.
Rid yourself of anything that is not directed toward God.
Let God and all his creation teach you what your sins are.
Man must do his part and detach himself from created things.
God in His wisdom has decided that He will reward no works but His own.
Like blind hens, we are ignorant of our own self and the depths within us.
You don't have to leave the world to be holy and grow closer to the Holy One.
Give yourself entirely to God, enter and hide in the hidden ground of your soul.
If you fall seventy times a day, rise seventy times and return to God so that you will not fall too often.
As a good wine must be kept in a good cask, so a wholesome body is the proper foundation for a well-appointed inner ground.
