We need to be attentive of things in our soul; to lend an ear and pick up what is done and told around us and in us. And when the Lord sees that we pay heed to His words and consider them holy, there are moments we feel as if we found ourselves in heaven.
On account of some word or phrase or meaning, without realizing it, while you’re lost in God –and I mean given to God– you find yourself in paradise. The heavenly breath comes and finds you and overwhelms you. The “electric power” of Christ and heaven comes through this word or that meaning and intoxicates you. This happens as Christ reaches us through every spiritual path and achieves special contact with every single one of us. It’s as if He whis- pers to us: “Yes, for you is the paradise reserved, for you the joy of God, for you all the blessings”.
What else would anyone wish for? What else?
