..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

He is in himself, in his holy Trinity,
nothing else but the boundless abyss of
all that is good, and sweet, and amiable,
and therefore stands in the utmost
contrariety to everything that is not a
blessing, in an eternal impossibility of
willing and intending a moment's pain or
hurt to any creature.

For from this unbounded source of goodness
and perfection, nothing but infinite streams
of blessing are perpetually flowing forth
upon all nature and creature, in a more
incessant plenty, than rays of light stream
from the sun. And as the sun has but one nature,
and can give forth nothing but the blessings
of light, so the holy Triune God has but one
nature and intent towards all the creation,
which is, to pour forth the riches and sweetness
of his divine perfections, upon everything that
is capable of them, and according to its capacity
to receive them.--William Law
