This darkness and cloud

2012-04-02 21.36.04.jpgThis darkness and cloud is always between you and God, no matter what you do and it prevents you from seeing him clearly by the light of understanding in your reason and from experiencing him in sweetness of love in your affections. So set yourself to rest in this darkness as long as you can, always crying out after him whom you love. For if you are to experience him or to see him at all, insofar as it is possible here, it must always be in this cloud and this darkness.
