We hunger to have the good forever. The only enduring good is God. To cling to him we have seek and think about what is above. At the same time we must put to death our disordered attachments and stop lying so we can truly see things as they are.

Tenemos hambre de tener el bien para siempre. El único bien duradero es Dios. Para aferrarnos a él tenemos que buscar y pensar en lo que está arriba. Al mismo tiempo, debemos matar nuestros apegos desordenados y dejar de mentir para que realmente podamos ver las cosas tal como son.
