Self-Egression, to Freedom, to God

The more disengaged and abstracted the self-egression of such souls [pursuing God] is, the more free will be their soaring exaltation; and the more free their exaltation, the deeper will be their penetration into the vast wilderness and unfathomable abyss of the unknown Godhead, wherein they are immersed, overflowed, and blended up [while retaining their individuality], so that they desire to have no other will than God’s will, and that they become the very same that God is: in other words, that they be made blessed by grace as He is by nature.
Blessed Henry Suso (1300–1366)
