The Most Intimate Embrace

The less a soul is encumbered by her own appetites and inclinations, the more He is alone and as in His own home in her, and the more alone, the more concealed does He remain there. In a soul that is free of all desires, disrobed of all forms, images, and creaturely inclinations, He lingers totally concealed and in the most intimate embrace.
Saint John of the Cross
