Free Sanctity of Will

The soil and stain of sensual life lies all uncovered in the clear light of the heavenly atmosphere, and it is only through the cleansing touch of this purifying flame that the gathered dross may be consumed, and the spirit regain its Paradise. A free sanctity of will remains always and inviolably ours. Help and forgiveness are Heaven's free gifts, but no force divine can love compel, and step by step we fall or rise, as we will.
