By deciding to go in search of God
one definitely turns away from
self with the intention of
consecrating the rest of the life for God.
The subduing of the passions and the
control of the senses are not intended as
punishment or rejection of the natural order.
It is the death of the old
for the sake of giving birth to the new.
It paves the way for the experience
of the goodness of creation
and is a means of uncovering the
supernatural in the natural.
It aims at a complete metamorphosis.
There should inevitably be a death
to experience the resurrection.
