Here are two quotes about the life of God within:
“When a woman is carrying a child she develops a certain instinct of self defense. It is not selfishness; it is not egoism. It is an absorption into the life within, a folding of self like a little tent around the child’s frailty, a God like instinct to cherish, and some day to bring forth, the life. A closing upon it like the petals of a flower closing upon the dew that shines in its heart. This is precisely the attitude we must have to Christ, the Life within us, in the Advent of our contemplation.”
From The Reed of God by Caryll Houselander
“Man will not consent to drive away the money changers from the temple of his soul, until he realizes that it is the Holy of Holies – not a house of traffic, but in very truth the house of God.”
From How to Pray Always by Raoul Plus, S. J.
