it is absurd to think that we can enter  Heaven without first entering our own souls
without getting to know ourselves
remember how important it is for  you to have understood this truth  
that the Lord is within us and  that we should be there with him
the whole Mischief comes from our not really  grasping the fact that God is near us and  
imagining he is far away so far that we shall have  to go to a distant heaven in order to find God
how is it Lord that we do not look  at thy face when it is so near us?
let our thoughts always be fixed upon what endures  
and not trouble ourselves with Earthly  things which do not endure even for a
lifetime think and meditate upon what is real
and upon what is not
pray without ceasing
all our Trouble Comes to us from not  having our eyes fixed upon the Divine
[Music]
when one of you sisters finds herself  in this Sublime state of prayer and  
the understanding or to put it more clearly  thought wanders off after the most ridiculous  
things in the world she should laugh at  it and treat it as the silly thing it is
and remain in her state of quiet
for thoughts will come and go
but the will, the intention is Mistress
and all powerful and will recall them  without you're having to trouble it
but if you try to drag the  understanding back by force
you lose your power over it
[Music]
in the prayer of quiet the Lord begins to give us  
his kingdom on Earth so that we may  truly Praise Him and hallow his name
this is a supernatural state
and however hard we try we  cannot reach it for ourselves
for it is a state in which  the soul enters into peace
or rather in which the Lord gives  it peace through his presence
in this state all the faculties are  stilled and have no wish to move
for any movement they may make appears  to hinder the soul from loving God
during the prayer of quiet what the soul has to do  
in the time of this quiet is no more  than to be gentle and make no noise
let the will quietly and prudently  understand that one does not deal  
successfully with God by any efforts of One's own
let her pay no heed to understanding  or reasoning which is a bore
it avails her more to let it  alone and not to run after it
the only reason that has to be held  here is to understand clearly that  
there is no reason why God  should do so great a favour
except his goodness alone
by the goodness of God all may reach this point
in these times of quiet then  let the soul Repose in her rest
let learning be put to one side
in such spiritual activity as this the person who  
does most is the one who thinks  least and desires to do least
the soul must just leave  itself in the hands of God
to know nothing is everything
some people attempted to imagine that  they can prolong the prayer of quiet
and they may even try not to breath
this is ridiculous we can no more control this  
prayer then we can make the day  break or stop night from falling
it is Supernatural
and something we cannot acquire
we can neither diminish nor add to it
but being most unworthy and undeserving of  it can only receive it with thanks giving
the will simply loves
