The Distance between Your
Way and Mine Is Vast
I make the creature look out to the thresholds of the unknown world that dominates them, in order to comprehend some secret and allow him to take it to the earth like an intense treasure. What pity for those who do not want to understand My work! What blindness that prevents knowing what most interests the soul who lives solitary on earth!
Yet, why do I allure this soul? Because I manifest Myself in it? May the creature comprehend and take hold of Me: I want her effort and will reward it. She should tell Me: "My Creator, I have not understood well what you mean, yet you have made me understand that You love me. For that reason I trust in You; I accept, listen, and want because I see that You want." Ah, if only they would tell Me this, those that waver would find so much good!
For this reason I speak to you of renouncing yourselves and I always insist on it. This is because I know and see that the reason why you do not listen to Me is always one: it is always the "I" full of self, not righteousness stripped of self. I repeat: the distance is vast between your way and Mine, between your reasons and Mine, the reasons why you do not believe I love you, that you will not succeed in filling the abyss that separates us. Nevertheless, I am with you every day, every hour, always, and you do not understand Me, you do not believe Me. I love you: remember it; think about it. It is not a fruitless thing. My Love is not empty words telling you that I love you, but it is full of truths and promises. I love you and you also love Me.
He who loves Me will see the fullness of truth in these words that I pronounce to give you the nth testimony of Me, because I do not deceive. I consolidate all your trust, continuously increasing My gifts and making them so evident so as to make you touch the truth of My Love with your hand. Creatures, be docile, believe in Me, and continuously mistrust yourselves. Take My word for it; this way you will find Me.
