From John Main, OSB, "Beyond All Images," THE WAY OF UNKNOWING (New York: Crossroad, 1990), pp. 41-43.
After Meditation from Willigis Jager, SEARCH FOR THE MEANING OF LIFE : Essays and Reflections on the Mystical Experience (Liguori, MO: Triumph, 1995), 137.
The point of contact with God is here and now because there is nothing that might not be divine. Here and now is also hell. Heaven and hell are separated only by our ego. If we can abandon the ego, we can enter the kingdom of God. There are no magical rituals that take us there, only the dying of our false ego. Only love gives us the power to abandon everything so as to enter into this new order of being.
