If You Submerge Yourselves
I have promised Celestial Glory to all, who denying themselves for My Love, arrive at the door through which one enters salvation.
What is Glory? The true Glory is the life of My being, and sharing that Life is to have the Glory of Heaven. I am glorious in Me, and you become glorious if you submerge yourselves in Me.
No one in Heaven can be in a corner, so as to see Me from a distance. All those whom I have saved form a magnificent crown with which I encircle Myself, so that while I make a crown out of the blessed ones, they make a crown for My Paradise. Paradise, you say with joy, but not even the shade of Paradise approaches earth, for it is so far from you!
So many surprises await the soul upon arriving at My Kingdom where all the scaffolding of time falls because he enters into the eternal and beatific union between Me and the same soul.
I talk to you about banquets, thrones, and splendid vestments: I do it in order to adapt Myself to you because if I had to speak the truth to you, I would have to tell you that I and only I am Paradise. But you, what would you understand? When would you comprehend? Very little and in a very misshapen way.
He who loves Me and loves Me a lot, begins to see as if in a fog, what Paradise is. He finds that the key to all My comparisons with which I explain eternal Glory is only one and that he already possess it because I gave it to him. Whoever knows Divine love understands in a veiled way what I am saying now.
So, it turns out that you speak of Paradise as love grows in you and the more love you have, the better you speak. When you get here you will find everything and you will find it precisely in Me, because I am your Paradise and not the things you imagined. Oh, human tongue, how improper of you to speak of Me! Oh, human thought, how small you are to be able to contend the infinite! Blinded man, how big is your presumption if you pretend to solve by yourself the problem of your future glory! Love, love, I tell you, and then you will know! If you do not love, you will not be able to know what I prepare for you.
