May we go deeper than Love

Good morning dear Ones,

As I was reviewing a post that I wrote in the fall of 2014, I came across a poem that was attached to the post. It is asking us to “go deeper than Love.”

Go Deeper than Love

Go deeper than love, for the soul has greater depths,
love is like the grass, but the heart is deep wild rock
molten, yet dense and permanent.

Go down to your deep old heart, and lose sight of yourself.
And lose sight of me, the me whom you turbulently loved.

Let us lose sight of ourselves, and break the mirrors.
For the fierce curve of our lives is moving again to the depths
out of sight, in the deep living heart.

D. H. Lawrence

(excerpt from Know Thyself, Know Thyself More Deeply)

Deep Love it is

How do we go deeper than Love is quite a question, isn’t it?

I was reflecting on this injunction this morning and our friend Faith came to the fore. Could Faith be part of the answer?

Just like Love, Faith is an attribute we can apply to ourselves and to others. We can have faith in our potential, in our gifts, and we can have faith in someone else. Knowing faith and trust are very close companions.

Yet, when we take a ‘trip of faith,’ jumping into the unknown and trusting the Universe, does that mean we are also on a Love ride?

Please feel free to play with Love and Faith and see how they apply to your lives.

Perhaps, at some points, they intersect and go their own ways?

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
