method of ascent


One has to follow this method…

this method of emptying
he faculties of their natural occupations
to make room for illumination.

The preparation for this union
is not an understanding,
nor the taste, feeling, or imagining of God or any other object,
but the stripping off
of all experiences
for God alone.

  • St John of the Cross. Ascent of Mount Carmel
