Love Is The Sister Of The Soul. Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Love Is The Sister Of The Soul.

We need the presence
and shelter of love
to transfigure our loneliness.

The cosmic loneliness
is the root of our inner loneliness.
Everything we do, think and feel
is surrounded by nothingness.
Hence we become easily fearful.

All of human life seems to stand
under the shadow of nothingness.
(Meister Eckhardt calles it 'umbra nihili') .

Neverthelesslove is the deepest
language and presence of the soul.
Love is the sister of the soul.

(You may refer to the spiritual wisdom
of the Celtic world)

A few things come to me reading this, Tony. First, from Ecclesiastes as translated in the King James Version of the Bible, God has put eternity in our hearts. Then, what follows quickly in my mind, from Augustine, Our hearts are restless till they find their rest in Thee. What comfort in knowing that before all is God! Some of what you explore here is in my Heart-Song which begins, My eye must taken second place. -Glen

I have always felt that the inner loneliness human beings feel stems from separation from the Absolute, Tony. We ARE beings of light and love and the illusions of this world, solid though everything seems, does not discharge the inner loneliness which can only be dispelled by union with the Source.
