attachment to matter

Attachment to matter
gives birth to passion without an Image of itself
because it is drawn from that which is contrary to its essence.

The result is that confusion and disturbance
resonate throughout one's whole being.

It is for this reason that I told you to find contentment
at the level of the heart, and if you are discouraged,
take heart in the presence of the Image of your true nature.
