"The soul is to be made happy, with the same happiness, where with God himself is to be forever blessed. And must not this be infinitely satisfactory? Wherein doth God's infinite blessed consist? Is it not in the close, near, intimate, and immediate enjoyment and fruition of himself? Is not God himself his own happiness? Why this also is the happiness of the saints; a close, intimate, and immediate enjoyment of God. Enlarge then, O soul: spread forth thyself wide: make room for thine own glory: thou art to be made happy, with the same happiness, that God himself is blessed with. He is blessed, in the eternal enjoyment of himself; and thou shalt be blessed, with the eternal enjoyment of God also. Enlarge then, O soul: spread forth thyself wide: stretch out the desires as wide as heaven itself; for the God of heaven will fill them."
