Moments of spiritual intensity - do your best to preserve them
"If you have experienced a moment of great spiritual intensity and at last tasted peace, love and light, do all you can to preserve this state. Do not allow yourself to slip back into mundane activities and preoccupations. In order to justify their negligence, some will say the moments of grace they experienced were perhaps just the fruit of their imagination. There you have it: heaven enlightened them and strengthened them, and they wonder whether they were the victim of an illusion! But when they feel weak, bowed down, in torment – that’s reality to them. Don’t talk to me about human ignorance and ingratitude!
Do your best to retain and deepen those rare moments when you are fortunate enough to receive currents of pure energy that will sustain you throughout your life. It is not effort that tires you; no, it is the tendency to open your mind and heart to dark, heavy thoughts and feelings. How can you not be tired when you are a burden to yourself?"
