Contents Preface -- Of the highest perfection which man can reach in this life -- How you may despise all things and cling to Christ alone -- Perfection in this life -- That our concern must be with the understanding and not with the senses -- Of purity of heart, which is to be sought above all else -- That a truly devout man must seek God in purity of mind and heart -- Of the practice of interior recollection -- That a truly devout man should commit himself to God in all things -- The contemplation of God is to be preferred above all other exercises -- That we should desire the union of our will with God -- In what manner we should resist temptation and endure trials -- The power of the love of God -- Of the nature and advantages of prayer; of interior recollection -- That everything should be judged according to our conscience -- On the contempt of self: how it is acquired: its profit to the soul -- Of the providence of God, which watches over all things.
