Allowing the unbearable movement of love to re-organize this life, cell by cell...


How will we respond to this burning, to this longing that has somehow been placed in us by the Beloved – this call to return Home? We so sweetly believe that our longing will be fulfilled – by another, by an external condition, by the right configuration of life circumstances. But this precious longing has been placed here not to be fulfilled, but to burn inside us forever, into eternity, opening up a grace-pathway into the sweetest and darkest areas of our most unprotected hearts. Let us turn directly into our longing, allowing it to penetrate us at the deepest somatic levels, to openly receive its gifts, to allow the unbearable movement of love to re-organize this life, cell by cell, and to finally see that this is all we could ever, ever want.
