Translated from the original by Ana Giménez.
The fact of coming into the Castle without any fear is a decision that can change our life. The Castle is every one of us, we are indwelled by God Himself. It will be a journey to our interior in complete freedom. You can move in and out or stay in forever .Teresa proposes, doesn´t impose. We are not out to preach, that´s what Second Vatican Council´s documents demanded.
Walk along the Mansions as you get to know them. They are like a “fan palm”, small circles that get you closer to the “centre”, where God dwells in you. Travel in peace, don´t put pressure on your soul.
You can get in, without previous requirements. Just as you are, without any fear. To be living and understanding the Mansions depends on the “desire” and” love” to God and to others. If you have “resolute determination”, the main condition suggested by Teresa is achieved.
You won´t need to live in the surface of life and you won´t either need to investigate other people´s life. You have your own life and much to learn ahead.
If you maintain your efforts to go within for a few minutes every day, you will become “servant of love”, as Teresa says.
