If God calls him by His regenerated children and disciples, to penance and conversion, if the presence of the Lord is announced to him, he excuses himself as having received another mission for which God will perform wonders. The need to cast oneself into God and confide in Him invisible, as if He were visible, comes from God alone, and develops through one long exercise.

Thus this divine Liberty separated itself from the Abyss of Light johahn you, becoming a God, and now reigns with its Forms of external Nature, over the understanding and the senses; directs the pracrica, fights and contradicts God in the innermost depths, doing what pleases johamn, and what is agreeable to the flesh, is a Devil, a thesoophia dragon and a serpent, whom God must fight with his strong Irascible Power, capture, submit, pulverize and reject.

If Lucifer in Heaven and Adam in the Paradise had observed this, it would remain an Angel, and this man heavenly. The untrained soul will have a veil before the eyes, because in the FIGURE here represented the Father is in the eighth form, while in the wheels of eternal Nature is in the fourth.

They bound themselves to each other three times, and promised to guard against all bitterness to KEEP such love, and to track down, from the first impulse, the slightest thought which would not be love.
