The Cloud of Unknowing

From The Cloud of Unknowing:

"Here one turns to God with a burning desire for Himself alone and rests in the blind awareness of his naked being."

"For I tell you this, one loving blind desire for God alone is more valuable in itself, more pleasing to God and to the saints, more beneficial to your growth, and more helpful to your friends, both living and dead, than anything else you could do."

"Let your longing relentlessly beat upon the cloud of unknowing that lies between you and your God."
