A Quote by Jan van Ruusbroec on mystic, contemplative, god, food, eating, union, apophatic, and jesus

If above all things we would taste God, and feel eternal life in ourselves, we must go forth into God with our feeling, above reason; and there we must abide, onefold, empty of ourselves, and free from images, lifted up by love into the simple bareness of our intelligence.

Jan Ruusbroec
