I want you to begin to learn how to abandon yourself, your entire existence to God. Every moment of every day, you must come to realize that you are in God’s immediate will. Knowing and understanding this conviction of abandonment will cause you to regard everything that comes your way. Abandonment is the key to the inner court, don’t listen to other confusing voices of natural reason. Remain steadfast (Romans 4:18; Matt 6:34, Proverbs 3:6; Ps 37:5)
You must give up both the external and internal things; all of your concerns must be placed into the hands of God; forget yourself; think only of Him; in doing so, your heart will remain free and at peace. Continually submit your will to God’s will and renounce every private inclination as soon as it arises, no matter how good it appears, you focus your heart on what God has willed from all eternity; forget the past. Devote the present to God.
