The Cloud Of Unknowing (62) - Chapter One And Sxty

HERE BEGINNETH THE ONE AND SIXTIETH CHAPTER

That all bodily thing is subject unto ghostly thing, and is ruled thereafter by the course of nature and not contrariwise.
                                                 ....................................................
"... For although that a thing be never so ghostly in itself, nevertheless yet if it shall be spoken of, since it so is that speech is a bodily work wrought with the tongue, the which is an instrument of the body, it behoveth always be spoken in bodily words. But what thereof? Shall it therefore be taken and conceived bodily? Nay, but ghostly, as it be meant."
