Practical Mysticism - CHAPTER VI - LOVE AND WILL

"Only the real, say the mystics, can know Reality, for “we behold that which we are,” the universe which we see is conditioned by the character of the mind that sees it: and this realness—since that which you seek is no mere glimpse of Eternal Life, but complete possession of it—must apply to every aspect of your being, the rich totality of character, all the “forces of the soul,” not to some thin and isolated “spiritual sense” alone."

know thy self

I take from this chapter two things. First know and love yourself. Have a deep intuitive knowledge of self and embrace you. Once you have taken a look then when you look out at the world you are seeing more clearly. You realize that the world does not revolve around you and your life. No longer will trivial things seem so important. Second reach out to God with feeling not in knowing. The brain can not understand God with facts, but feeling can reach with love and possibly "pierce the cloud of unknowing".
