St. John of the Cross: "Set thine eyes on Him alone"
"Wherefore he that would now enquire of God, or seek any vision
or revelation, would not only be acting foolishly, but would be committing an offence
against God, by not setting his eyes altogether upon Christ, and seeking no new thing
or aught beside. And God might answer him after this manner, saying: If I have spoken
all things to thee in My Word, Which is My Son, and I have no other word, what answer
can I now make to thee, or what can I reveal to thee which is greater than this?
Set thine eyes on Him alone, for in Him I have spoken and revealed to thee all things,
and in Him thou shalt find yet more than that which thou askest and desirest. For
thou askest locutions and revelations, which are the part; but if thou set thine
eyes upon Him, thou shalt find the whole; for He is My complete locution and answer,
and He is all My vision and all My revelation; so that I have spoken to thee, answered
thee, declared to thee and revealed to thee, in giving Him to thee as thy brother,
companion and master, as ransom and prize."
