Love Awake in Love

Never Knew & Never Dreamed

Living in LOVE beyond Beliefs



*Devotion, Mark Johnston, Flickr

I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes

Every idea of Him we form, He must in mercy shatter. The most blessed result of prayer would be to rise thinking "But I never knew before. I never dreamed ....

*C.S. Lewis. Letters to Malcom: Chiefly on Prayer.

Such Loveliness, As This
The Wine glass shattered and
I fell into a dizzying world ...
I saw myself making Love with you,
when there arose a most Beautiful Sight
and this Surprise
disclosed to me a delicious quiet
A taste so sweet, beyond sweetness true,
my blunted tongue could barely receive
Inside, while as dark as Night, together,
I first heard your whisper
I who had sought you, to me you spoke,
"And did you not know I so sought you, too?"
I started to reply, stammering so awestruck;
but wordlessly you said,"Hush! listen, my Love,
relax, as words lighted the way to my bed,
Silence will now lead you to my Heart."
And so I did rest, and rest the more, in your arms
with mind asleep and Love awake in Love

Friends, see, your thoughts a sacrament of grace; now,
only Silence will undress such Loveliness as This

There is such a fall, into such a world,
Fortunate are those who find themselves lost Here, in Love

Silent Prayer

*Lotus of the Heart is a Work of Arem Nahariim-Samadhi ~ a Hospice Chaplain, interspiritual author, writer, and poet, and bicyclist. He is someone in love with Life and inviting others to that same ecstasy of Love ~ and, by the way, herein is nothing he claims as his own.
