God Speaks to the Soul

March 12, 2015 § Leave a comment

And God said to the soul:

I desired you before the world began.

I desire you now

As you desire me.

And where the desires of two come together

There love is perfected

 

HOW THE SOUL SPEAKS TO THE SOUL

Lord, you are my lover,

My longing,

My flowing stream,

My sun,

And I am your reflection.

 

HOW GOD ANSWERS THE SOUL

It is my nature that makes me love you often,

For I am love itself.

It is my longing that makes me love you intensely,

For I yearn to be loved from the heart.

It is my eternity that makes me love you long,

For I have no end.

 

Mechthild of Magdeburg, 1207-1282
