Nothing should touch me

2 November 2018

It seemed to me that nothing mattered so much as mortifying the senses, removing myself from the carnal and secular outlook, and, once I’d turned in on myself, that nothing human should touch me. I wanted only to converse with God, to live beyond everyday events, to experience divine revelations, to become a real unblemished mirror of God. I took light from light and, from being in the dark, was illumined, already harvesting in this life the fruits of those hoping for future blessings, leaving behind this earth and keeping company with the angels.
