The soul whose nature is not greatly solicitous for the gathering of possessions, does not require great diligence in order to find within itself impulses of wisdom unto God. For freedom from connection with the world will naturally set in motion flashes of intuition from which it can exalt itself unto God and remain in ecstasy.

When the waters from without do not enter the fountain of the soul, its natural waters arise, viz. the wonderful intuitions that are moving toward God at all times.

St. Isaac the Syrian, Mystical Treatises (Treatise III/section 20)
