Sample text

Man has a right to grief but never to sin: to lack light is a different thing from putting out the light one already has. 11 2 Fundamental Keys Meditation, concentration, prayer: these three words epitomize the spiritual life, while at the same time indicating its principal modes. Meditation, from the standpoint here adopted, is an activity of the intelligence in view of understanding universal truths; concentration for its part is an activity of the will in view of assimilating these truths or realities existentially, as it were; and prayer in turn is an activity of the soul with respect to God.

Metaphysical knowledge is sacred. It is the property of sacred things to require of man all that he is. * * * Intelligence, as soon as it distinguishes, perceives proportions, if one may put it this way. The spiritual man integrates these proportions into his will, into his soul, into his life. All defects are disproportions; they are errors that are lived. To be spiritual means not to deny with one’s “being” what is affirmed with one’s “knowledge”, that is, what is accepted by the intelligence.

In a general way it is too often forgotten that sentiment as such is not to be identified with its deviations but that it is on the contrary a normal psychic fact, which is capable of playing a positive role in spirituality; the mere fact that in praying man makes use of all his inward faculties in striving toward God, and consequently also of his natural sentimentality, which he cannot abolish or treat as non-existent, in no way means that feeling should be taken as an end in itself or that it thus should entail a more or less individualistic alteration of doctrinal truths.
