Measure for Measure

This becoming one with the Eternal Goodness cannot come to pass but by an absolute renunciation of our self, and all that is ours, natural or spiritual; for in the same measure that a man comes out from himself, in that measure does God enter in with His divine grace, and he who loses his life shall find it [cf. Mt 10:39; 16:25; Lk 9:24; 17:33].
Johannes Tauler OP (1300–1361)
