Principles and Practices - January 26

A Way To Self-Knowledge

To live in continual fear of yourself, of your own judgement, of your proneness to sin; and of the countless enemies, against whom you are of yourself utterly powerless, of their great experience in this warfare, their wiles, their capa­biliry of transforming themselves into angels of light, their innumerable snares and traps which they secret1y spread in the very way itself of holiness.
