New Seeds of Contemplation
"There is an irreducible opposition
between the deep transcendent self
that awakens only in contemplation,
and the superficial, external self
which we commonly identify with the first person singular.
Our reality, our true self,
is hidden in what appears to us to be nothingness....
We can rise above this unreality
and recover our hidden reality....
God Himself begins to live in me
not only as my Creator
but as my other and true self.”
