No sooner does the soul touch the inner kingdom, which is the divine kingdom, than the true nobility of the soul becomes manifest in the form of graciousness. Kings and those belonging to aristocratic families were trained in the manner of graciousness, but it is born in the heart of man. This means that every soul shows the aristocratic manner from the moment it touches the inner kingdom, and it shows that true aristocracy is the nobility of the soul: when the soul begins to express in every feeling, thought, word and action that graciousness which belongs to God Himself.
