A Quote by Mechtild of Magdeburg on mechtild of magdeburg, fire of creation, true nature, and oneness with god

"In the fire of creation, gold does not vanish; the fire brightens.  Each creature God made must live in its own true nature; how could I resist my nature, that lives for oneness with God?"
