Quote by Blessed John of Ruysbroeck

"When love has carried us above all things...we receive in peace the Incomprehensible Light, enfolding us and penetrating us. What is this Light, if it not be a contemplation of the Infinite and an intuition of Eternity? We behold that which we are, and we are that which we behold, because our being...is united with the Divine Truth." - Blessed John of Ruysbroeck, 14th Century Catholic mystic.

From the book "Mysticism" by Evelyn Underhill. Sent to me by Todd Brown, member of the Des Moines Meditation and Mindfulness Group.
