The Pillar and Ground of the Truth1914
Thus the goal of the ascetic’s strivings is to perceive all of creation in its original triumphant beuaty. It is the purified heart that can overflow with love all creation, when what is revealed to it is that side of every creature which is worthy of total love and which is therefore the eternal and holy side of every creature.
