It Is The Heart Which Leads Us To The Absolute. - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore
It is the heart and never the reason
which leads us to the Absolute.
Mystical literature glow
with this intimate and impassioned love
of the Absolute which transcends
the dogmatic language.
“There in the lucky dark,
none to observe me, darkness far and wide;
no sign for me to mark,
no other light, no guide
except for my heart-the fire, the fire inside! ”
(St. John of the Cross, “The Dark Night” in the Poems of St. John of the Cross, third edition, original Spanish texts and English translations by John Frederick Nims., The University of Chicago Press, Chicago & London,1979., PP.19-21) .
