Syllable of Love

“The inner world is as real as the outer world. One ought to be conscious of that… These two worlds are fed by each other, you must not neglect one at the expense of the other, must not deem one more important than the other.”― Etty Hillesum, An Interrupted Life: The Diaries, 1941-1943; and Letters from Westerbork

“And don’t we all, with fierce hunger, crave a cave of solitude, a space of deep listening—full of quiet darkness and stars, until finally we hear a syllable of God echoing in the cave of our hearts?” — Macrina Wiederkehr

A prompt.
Beauty seen, really seen.
Awe unbound.
A spark.
A whisper.
A syllable.
Deep listening.
Long gazing.
Pausing in wonder.
Dancing with gratitude.
Held in grace.
May you love well without ceasing.
And be loved in return.

“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”― Henry Drummond
