‘The pure Heart…’

heartsparkle

“The deliciousness of milk and honey is the reflection of the pure Heart: From that Heart the sweetness of every sweet thing is derived.
The Heart is the substance, and the world the accident:
how should the heart’s shadow be the object of the heart’s desire?
Is that pure heart the heart that is enamored of riches or power,
or is submissive to this black earth and water of the body,
or to vain fancies it worships in the darkness for the sake of fame?
The Heart is nothing but the Sea of Light:
is the heart the place of vision of God–and then blind?”
