^ have food to feed upon. Now, no fire-source can subsist in the free fire; for it attains not that, inasmuch as it is only a self-thing. 12. All that is to subsist in God must be freed from its own will. It must have no individual fire burning in it; but God's fire must be its fire. Its will must be united to God, that God and the will and spirit of man may be but one. 13. For that which is one is not at enmity with itself, for it has only one will. Wherever it goes, or whatever it does, that is all one with it. 14. One will has only one imagination; and the imagination makes or desires only that which assimilates with it. And so in like manner we are to understand concerning the contrary will. 15. God dwells in all things; and nothing com- prehends him, unless it be one with him. But if it go out from the One, it goes out of God into itself, and is another than God, which separates itself. And here it is that law arises, that it should proceed again out of itself into the One, or else remain separated from the One* 16. And thus it may be known what is sin, or how it is sin. Namely, when the human will separates itself from God into an existence of its own, and awakens its own self, and burns in its own fire, which is not capable of the divine fire. 17. For all into which the will enters, and will have as its own, is something foreign in the one will of God. For all is God's, and to man's own will belongs nothing. But if it be in God, then all is its also.
