The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.
The Word is living, being, spirit, all verdant greening, all creativity. This Word manifests in every creature.
*St. Hildegard of Bingen, d. 1179.
The great need now is the marriage of opposites, which is union of heaven and earth, flesh and spirit, sacred and secular, many and One. We have had enough of against, and need movement into with, into life as a communion. Our destiny is beyond toleration to inclusion, to the healing of separation, and this is only done by Love, not you or me or us as persons. Revolutions are still against, and that will not work, it never has, even when it bettered life for many. Seeking to convert others to our way of life, our politics, our religion, our spirituality, our anything is still oppositional, meaning against. We need ecstasy, a movement out of where we have lived, allowing a seeing of every particular is manifestation of one Grace, every life of one Life, each being of Being. Touch anything rightly, and you will feel "God." Destiny is realized in any moment of loving and being loved. Creation is for loving, only. This is why our deepest yearning is to love and be loved, and our only joy is when Love is known to be alive and present. We cannot simply move into some subtle Union, we move into Union in the fruition of communion, even as Oneness, already present, births communion.

Where do I start loving you, tonight, My Love
Point Point to the place
Guide my fingers Set my lips upon the spot
I will follow I will consent I am glad to obey
To be happy to see You happy, My Dear
I am Love's slave, with You, I am One for only One... You
Or shall I start, My Love, anywhere
For wherever my lips touch my hands caress
one Taste a single touch anywhere, everywhere
I have heard you exclaim, say:
"There, there! Yes, right there... There! I feel you loving all of Me, all Night"
"My Love, I am the Ocean receiving you here tonight, under your graced gaze... this Darkness beckons me into your amorous arms
"Yes, we the same Ocean... moving inside each other one "Yes," one entering, one being entered, one gaze only, for Love we are ~ where do you begin, where I"
No more words..., let's just touch Heaven Together, in this shimmering Silence...
