Like it or not, my mind runs ever, but we don't now meet to exchange chat. I presume that that separation, like all else, is part of the pattern leading to the needed culmination.

The rule seems to be, that so long as one's mind supposes our thoughts, emotions, deeds etc are our own, our doing, - for good or ill - one c a n n o t experience the bliss of integration, union, harmony with the cosmos...the unio mystica of the saints .

"It" is almost certainly
