Rational Mind

  Just as we have received the sense of sight from God in order that we may know phenomena, e.g. what white is and what black is, so also has the rational faculty been given to us by God in order that we may distinguish the things that are good for the soul. But desire, divorced from reason, begets pleasure and does not allow the soul to be saved or to be united with God.
