November 13, 2013 § Leave a comment

“I am really terrified by what passes among us in these days.  Anyone who has barely begun to meditate, if he becomes conscious of words (of this kind) during his self-recollection, pronounces them forthwith to be the work of God: and convinced that they are so, goes about proclaiming ‘God has told me this,’ or ‘I have had that answer from God.’ But all is illusion and fancy; such a one has only been speaking to himself.”
