Those who are often and much hindered by the contrarious life, and thus are involved in the mixed life, and travail in desire for the birth of the holy life : for them are these writings written. And we bid them not regard it as impossible to discern and to know such mystery and we give them this to consider of in a similitude. Let them imagine a life which is the outcome and growth of all lives, and is mixed. But let them also imagine another life to grow in it from all the lives, which, though it had grown from all the lives, was free from all the other lives, and yet possessed all the essential properties of those lives. This other new life (let them imagine) is illuminated with the light, in and of God. This new image, born in the life of God, beholds all the natural lives, and nothing is strange or difficult to it for it beholds only its root from which it grew.
