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)
