My son, if a light appears, the darkness recedes on its own, does it not?

If good qualities are present, beauty comes on its own.

If virtue is present, good conduct comes on its own.

If wisdom is present, understanding comes on its own.

If understanding is clear, faith in God comes on its own.

If faith is present, God will come to you.

If God comes, heaven will come to you.

If heaven comes, the wealth of God’s grace will come.

If the wealth of grace comes, then God’s love and compassion will come.

In that state, there are no differences and no darkness. If you fill yourself with these good things, everything will be within you.
