For where Christ is born, or his Spirit rises up in the Soul, there all Self is denied, and obliged to turn out; there all carnal Wisdom, Arts of Advancement, with every pride and Glory of this Life, are as so many heathen Idols all willingly renounced, and the Man is not content, but rejoices to say, that his kingdom is not of this World.  (William Law, emphasis in the original)
