Three quotes from the book so that it can speak for itself:
Saint Therese of Lisieux: "True love inevitably leads to total surrender... To love is to give everything and to give oneself... That is why surrender is not optional. It is as binding as love. 'Love the Lord your God with all your strength' means: 'Surrender yourself totally.' Those who do not want the latter do not want the former."
The Author: "The infinity of God comes to us through a funnel. It becomes so little and so narrow that it is difficult for us to recognize it. It comes only drop by drop through the small opening. The funnel is the present moment. When I put my mouth to the funnel, I am nourished by infinity."
The Author: "There is a tremendous flexibility and mobility in those who increasingly strive to live in the present moment. They are completely synchronized with God. We ordinarily get stuck in what was once God's will but is no longer, or we already live in what will probably be God's will but often does not come to be. Experience shows that we are always making wrong prognoses. We often live in the past and the future at the same time, which gives us a feeling of inner division and is perhaps the main cause of our weariness. We have not surrendered our past with its guilt and painful wounds. We carry it with us like a heavy burden. Nor do we dare to surrender our future to God. We are afraid that he will take advantage of our trust."
