Stay close to this longing

There is an ache within you, but it is unlike any ache you have ever known. It is relentless and wild, but also of the nature of a burning sweetness. It is there as you wake in the morning, dripping into your heart during the day, and unbearably intimate with you all through the night. 

It is forming particles of joy and happiness within you, taking shape as your sense of openness and connection, and unfolding its intelligence when you feel sad, lost, and confused, wondering where the grace has gone. 

This ache is not a mistake. Stay close to this longing for it is the bridge between your heart and the heart of the beloved.
