We are on chapter 21.

ובהתבוננו על רוב חסדיו עמנו, ועל גודל אהבתו יתברך לישראל, ועל קרבת הישרים אליו ומעלת התורה והמצות, וכיוצא מן העיונים והלימודים, ודאי שתתלהט בו אהבה עזה, ויבחר ויתאוה לידבק בו, כי בראותו שהשם יתברך הוא לנו לאב ממש, ומרחם עלינו כאב על בנים, יתעורר בו בהמשך החפץ והתשוקה לגמול לו כבן על אביו.
And when he contemplates G-d’s great lovingkindness to us, His great love for the Jewish people, the closeness of the Just to Him, the virtue of Torah and mitzvot, and other similar investigations and studies, certainly, a powerful love will ignite within him, and he will choose and lust to cling to Him. For when he sees that the Creator, blessed be He, is literally (mamash) like a father to us, and has mercy on us as a father on his sons, there will then awaken within him a desire and longing to reciprocate back to Him, as a son to his father.

והנה לזה צריך האדם שיתבודד בחדריו, ויקבוץ כל מדעו ותבונתו על ההסתכלות ואל העיון בדברים האמתיים האלה.
For this, a person must seclude himself in his chambers, and focus all his knowledge and thought to the observation and in-depth study of these true matters.
