Now Christ has graciously selected you from his large flock of sheep to be one of his special followers. He brought you to this place of pasture that you may graze on his love. This kingdom of heaven is your heritage, and God asks you to claim it.
Do not hesitate to make that claim. Forget the past and press on to the future. Remember your spiritual needs rather than your spiritual achievements. If you want to progress to the ideal, you must hunger for it. Strong desire must direct your will. It will become yours by the power of God and with your consent.
The Cloud of Unknowing, Chapter 2
