A person appears to himself by means of what his will offers him. And it can turn him both toward the body and toward the spirit, toward the earth and toward heaven. But this illusion of the sufficiency of his will, as separate from the Will in which lies all potential, distances him from the trust that his madness reveals as love, and his calculation as madness. Trust is the relation of the faithful, or those who have faith. And faith is love that wishes to know the beloved. It is also knowledge that wishes to love the known. Faith is love of knowledge and knowledge of the loved. The will is always revealed in denial or action. Although trust includes divergence, its outcome is unity. And the self wants nothing other than that unity in the Self.
