The Hunger Of Heart And Intellect - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

The mystic is in love with the Absolute
not in any idle or sentimental manner,
but in that deep and vital sense
which presses forward at all costs
and through all dangers
towards union with the object loved.

The desire of love
and the desire of knowledge
correspond to the two eternal passions
of the self, representing
the hunger of heart and intellect
for ultimate truth.
