There is an art, known only to a few, by which the purified and faithful soul of man may be instructed and illuminated, so as to be raised at once from the darkness of ignorance to the light of wisdom and knowledge. If the soul is perfectly purified and sanctified she becomes free in her movements, she sees and recognizes the divine light, and she instructs herself, while she seems to be instructed by another. tha state she requires no other admonition except her own thought, which is the head and guide of the soul. She is then no more subject to terrestrial conditions of time, but lives in the eternal; and for her to desire a thing is to possess it already.
Man's power to think increases in proportion as this ethereal and celestial power of light penetrates his mind, and, strengthening his mental faculties, it may enable him to see and perceive that which he interiorly thinks, just as if it were objective and external. Spirit being unity and independent of our ideas of space, and all men having therefore essentially the same spirit, the souls of men existing at places widely distant from each other may thus enter into communication, and converse with each other exactly in the same manner as if they had met in their physical bodies. In this state man may perform a great many things in an exceedingly short period of time, so that it may seem to us as if he had required no time at all to perform it. Such a man is able to comprehend and understand everything by the light of the universal power or guiding intelligence with which he is spontaneously united.
