Chapter Summary

The dialogue is divided into four chapters according to the four directions of the spiritual exercise. In the first part, Anima asks how the mental exercise should be. Homo leads Anima first to introspection: the soul is to look inward and consider its own perfection. The second chapter is about conducting meditation outwards. Homo leads Anima to the discontinuity and impermanence of the world, warns against the wisdom and the riches of the world, and the love of family and relatives. The third chapter says that the soul should meditate on the inevitability of death, the justice of the Last Judgment and the torments of hell. The fourth chapter is about following the upward direction by Homo; Anima shows the bliss in heaven. The original text of the chapter is in German.
