Ascension

Ascension

He who ascends never ceases to go from begining to begining, through a series of beginings that never ends. The one who ascends never ceases to desire what he already knows. But continually ascending, from one desire  for something newer and greater to still another that is higher, the soul continues  its course towards the infinite,  by means of ever more upward flights. Thus, to the one who is ascending, there comes ever more insistently a call which leads  him to rise ever more on high :  “Come , my love, my dove , hiding in the clefts of the rock.”

– Gregory of Nissa, Homily 8 on the Song of Songs
