Spiritual dying – Refranes escogidos


 

And, through this spiritual dying, his (a man’s) soul is taken from him, and lifted up on high; while his body is still upon earth, his spirit and heart are already in his eternal Fatherland; and all his actions have a heavenly source, and seem no longer to belong to this earth. For he lives no longer according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

The Sophic Hydrolith

 

……………………………………………

 

 

El pequeño mal espanta y el grande amansa.

 

El poco comer y el poco parlar no hizo nunca mal.

 

El pensamiento sin alas vuela.

 

El que de veinte no puede, y de treinta no sabe, y de cuarenta no tiene, ni podrá, ni sabrá, ni tendrá.

 

El que a larga vida llegó, mucho mal vio.

 

El que algo debe, no reposa como quiere.
