The Encounter

"The counsel is therefore to remember that we are the Sanctum Regnum—the Holy Kingdom—the centrum concentratum of love and that it is for us to learn the Royal Art by which it is prepared for the Presence to abide in our love therein. The preparation is the Practice of the Presence, a will to realisation of that which is always there, and this is a will to love. It is the Practice also of Peace.”
