7. Control Through Love . . .

WHEN YOUR LOVE FOR ME drives away your lust for the things of the senses, then you realize Me.

 


8. Selfless Service . . .

IF YOU HAVE THE QUALITY of selfless service unaffected by results, similar to that of the sun which serves the world by shining on all creation . . . on the grass in the field, on the birds in the air, on the beasts in the forest, on all mankind with its sinner and its saint, its rich and its poor, unconscious of their attitude towards it . . . then you will win Me.

 


9. Renunciation . . .

IF YOU RENOUNCE FOR ME everything physical, mental and spiritual, then you have Me.

 


10. Obedience . . .

IF YOUR OBEDIENCE IS SPONTANEOUS, complete and natural as the light is to the eye or smell is to the nose, then you come to Me.

 


11. Surrender . . .

IF YOUR SURRENDER to Me is as wholehearted as that of one, who, suffering from insomnia, surrenders to sudden sleep without fear of being lost, then you have Me.

 


12. Love . . .

IF YOU HAVE THAT LOVE FOR ME that St. Francis had for Jesus, then not only will you realize Me, but you will please Me.
