The Only Way is Detachment

Charles JournetOne cannot go towards things other than in looking beyond them. That is the only way to make way towards the things that are bitter, just as it is the only way to make way towards those that are sweet.
Charles Cardinal Journet (18911975)

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)
