Yitzhaq (He Laughs)

"Strive to enter the shrine within you and you will see the shrine of heaven, for the one is the same as the other and a single entrance permits you to contemplate both. The ladder leading to that kingdom is hidden within you, that is, within your soul: cleanse yourself from sin and there you will find the steps by which you ascend."
-- St. Isaac of Syria, 7th ct. Nestorian Bishop of Nineveh, hermit, and mystic
