The path to freedom and salvation is found in our human weakness and sins. This seems counterintuitive. When we see we are not living as Jesus has shown us to, we are failing to be our best self. We must give up our self-centered behaviors to follow Jesus. Jesus was humble, served others and sacrificed. We too must take on these ways of loving to be a mystic. Love is more than a feeling. It is an action directed toward others and God.
