-Bodywork: The primordial sound
-Meditation: Meditation : The Sound
-His teachings “ The Imitation of Christ: Inner Consolation”
"I WILL hear what the Lord God will speak in me", Ps 84:9
Blessed is the soul who hears the Lord speaking within her,
who receives the word of consolation from His lips.
Blessed are the ears that catch the accents of divine whispering, and pay no heed
to the murmurings of this world
Blessed indeed are the ears that listen, not to the voice which sounds without, but
to the truth which teaches within.
Blessed are the eyes which are closed to exterior things and are fixed upon those
which are interior.
Blessed are they who penetrate inwardly, who try daily to prepare themselves more
and more to understand mysteries.
Blessed are they who long their time to God, and who cut themselves off
from the hindrances of the world
Consider these things, my soul, and close the door of your senses, so that you can
hear what the Lord your God speaks within you.
"I am your salvator", says your Beloved " I am your peace and your life
Remain with Me and you will find peace.
Dismiss all passing things and seek the eternal.
What are all temporal things but snares? And what help will all creatures be able
to give you if you are deserted by the Creator?"
Leave all these things therefore, and make yourself pleasing and faithful to your
Creator so that you may attain to true happiness.
(Book III: Chap 1)
