Where is Your Heart Turned?

Another great selection from William Law.
"The spirit of prayer is a pressing forth of the soul out of this earthly life,
it is a stretching with all its desire after the life of God,
it is a leaving, as far as it can, all its own spirit,
to receive a spirit from above, to be one life, one love, one spirit with Christ in God.
For the love which God bears to the soul, His eternal, never-ceasing desire to enter into it,
and to dwell in it, stays no longer than till the door of the heart opens for Him.
For nothing does, or can keep God out of the soul, or hinder His holy union with it,
but the desire of the heart turned from Him."
So, where is your heart turned? Toward Him or from Him?
