Why are you so sad? There arose an infernal will and a devil so bitter that they run away from each other, and that manifest Love that existed, was changed into murder, slander, vices, false judgments and persecutions, giving free course to such perversity that far exceeded the good we had done.
If the soul still humbly abandons itself to God, so that it will make of it what will please Him, the Devil has yet to leave. I would gladly see one.

The untrained soul will have a veil before the eyes, because in the FIGURE here represented the Father is in the eighth form, while in the wheels of eternal Nature is in the fourth. This is what happens very easily and very quickly when the soul relaxes its hold on itself a little, when it turns inconsiderately towards the terrestrial spirit of this world, or when she allows an evil thought to penetrate into herself against her brother, and she exalts her pride above the Thrones. But as man has become quite external and animal, as he seeks johanj the perishable treasures of this world, as he loves his life and disdains the imperishable Good, many things remain sealed to him.

My Christian reader must understand here that I speak of the regenerated soul which is, with the prodigal son, on the road to the house of his dear Father. Finally, the reader sees what heavenly and infernal forms oppose each other in the highest and deepest struggle and besiege one another simultaneously.
They abandon praying and fighting, as I did myself, and advise my reader not to imitate me. When the soul is converted into the body, it turns its back to the light of the Sun, and raises its face toward God in the interior Light of the World; it receives at once new meanings, although it is still engaged in the darkness.
