Spiritual Love

Time and place are spiritual states, and all that is seen and heard is spiritual. If you close your eyes you perceive all things through the depths of your inner self and you will see the world physical and ethereal, in its intended entirety, and you will acquaint yourself with its necessary laws and precautions, and you will understand the greatness that it possesses beyond its closeness....
When you know a thing, you believe it, and the true lover and believer sees with his spiritual discernment that which the surface investigator cannot see with the eyes of his head, and he understands through his inner thought that which the outside examiner cannot understand with his demanding, acquired process of thought.
The believer/lover acquaints himself with the sacred realities through deep senses different from those used by others. A true lover looks upon his senses as a great wall surrounding him, and when he walks upon the Path he says, “ This city has no exits. But it is perfect Within.”
