The Book of Privy Counseling q

The Book of Privy Counseling - Do you see now why I tell you to bind up your faculties by refusing to work with them and be absorbed, instead, in offering to God the naked, blind awareness of your own being? But I say again: be sure that it is naked and not clothed in any ideas about the attributes of your being. You might be inclined to clothe it in ideas about the dignity and goodness of your being or with endless considerations of the intricate details relating to man’s nature or the nature of other creatures. But as soon as you do this, you have given meat to your faculties and they will have the strength and opportunity to lead you on to all sorts of other things. I warn you, before you know it, your attention will be scattered and you will find yourself distracted and bewildered. Please be wary of this trap, I pray you.mythoughts, thoughtsofgod, thoughts of God, David Reese
