Treatise on the Practical Life
By the Same
1 Christianity is the dogma of our Saviour Christ composed of practical, natural and theological parts.
2 The Kingdom of the Heavens is dispassion of soul with true gnosis of existent things.
3 The Kingdom of God is gnosis of the Holy Trinity coextensive with the constitution of the mind and exceeding its incorruptibility.
4 Whatever one loves (eros) he certainly aspires to, and what he aspires to he struggles to attain. And desire is the beginning of every pleasure; desire, then, begets sense-perception, for that which is without a share in sense-perception is also free of passion.
