"I remained, lost in oblivion; My face I reclined on the Beloved. All ceased and I abandoned myself, Leaving my cares forgotten among the lillies." Thus writes 16th century Spanish poet and mystic, St. John of the Cross. In this, his third work, the author reflects on the nature of a personal union with Christ, found in the abandonment of self.

Excellent, St John of the Cross is amazing in teaching one to strive for union with God here and in Eternity.
All of St. John of the Cross' books are wonderful, including this one. It definitely helps to deepen your faith and love of God.
This book is Absolutely inspiring and helpful to those who strive to be "perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect".
The narrator was a little heavy on the accent at times, but overall done well.
I highly recommend this e-book for anyone striving for sainthood!
This classic will change the way you approach everything in life. If you find yourself lost or spinning your wheels in your spiritual life and relationship with God, then you MUST read this!
