...the best recreation to a spiritual mind, when it is weary of worldly employments, is to walk into Christ's garden; and there, by reading and meditating, singing of Psalms, and holy conference, you may solace yourself with the sweet comforts of the Holy Spirit, and enliven your heart with joy in God, even joy in the Holy Ghost; and a delight in the commandments and word of God. These are the most profitable, most ravishing, and most lasting delights of all others. And by how much the soul is of a more spiritual, heavenly constitution, by so much more it will content and satisfy itself in these delights.
