The Inner Spark

The inner essence of the soul, which reflects, which lives the true spiritual life, must have absolute inner freedom. It experiences its freedom, which is life, through its originality in thought, which is its inner spark that can be fanned to a flame through study and concentration. But the inner spark is the basis of imagination and thought. If the autonomous spark should not be given scope to express itself, then whatever may be acquired from the outside will be of no avail.

This spark must be guarded in its purity, and the thought expressing the inner self, in its profound truth, its greatness and majesty must be aroused. This holy spark must not be quenched through any study or probing.

The uniqueness of the inner soul, in its own authenticity– this is the highest expression of the seed of divine light, the light planted for the righteous, from which will bud and blossom the fruit of the tree of life. (Notebook 3:349)
