3. How the divine will is to be recognized by means of the most secret judgments of God --

5. What are the marks and signs of a human will conformed to the divine. BOOK THREE --
1. How great tranquility of mind conformity of the human will to the divine produces --
2. Whether or not it can be that one should never be sad, and whether this state is to be brought about in the same way in which we conform our own will to the divine --

4. A most remarkable instance of a man who refused to submit his own will to the divine --
5. What things chiefly strengthen the perversity of one's own will --
6. That nothing belonging to one's own will is to be retained, as well in difficulties of all kinds, as in death itself --

7. How great the providence of God is in reference to the necessaries of life --
8. How great is the providence of God towards His friends --
9. How great is the providence of God towards His enemies as well as friends --
10. How great want of trust in God is yet shown by very many --
