The Wisdom of the Lord is an inexhaustible fountain, neither hath there
ever been a man born who could penetrate its veritable origin and
foundation. The Sages and Holy Fathers have drunk long draughts
thereof, and have been fully satisfied therewith. But with all this, not one
among them hath been able to comprehend or know the Radical Principles,
because the Creator of all things reserveth that unto Himself; and, like a
jealous God, He hath indeed wished that we should enjoy the fruit thereof,
but He hath not wished to permit us to touch either the Tree or its Root. It is
then not only proper, but further also we are compelled to conform ourselves
unto the Will of the Lord, walking in that Path, by the which also our
predecessors went, without seeking out through a vain curiosity how it is that
God reigneth and governeth in His Divine Wisdom; because such would be a
very great presumption and a bestial conceit. Let us then content ourselves
with only knowing how many blessings He hath granted unto us Sinners, and
what extent of power He hath given unto us mortals over all things, and in
what way it is permitted unto us to use them. Let us then content ourselves
with this, laying aside all other, curiosity, observing without any comment that
which shall be set down in this Book with fidelity. And if ye do follow my
advice, ye shall be infallibly comforted thereby.
