Publisher's Summary

"I remained, lost in oblivion; My face I reclined on the Beloved. All ceased and I abandoned myself, Leaving my cares forgotten among the lillies." Thus writes 16th century Spanish poet and mystic, St. John of the Cross. In this, his third work, the author reflects on the nature of a personal union with Christ, found in the abandonment of self.

a great spiritual book, StJohn is methodical and brief in his treatment of relayong necessary truths. the speaker helped a lot and was enjoyable to listen to. the book was never finished by St John but it was great for what he did write and is completely worthwhile to read. to grow in the spiritual life, this is certainly a great place to start once one wishes to choose Him for His own sake and not His favours
