Vaga bond


how is it that i keep on circling You

that just when i come close

this wall appears

and i am here 

and You are there

the ecstasy remembered

but not touched


and though the memory alone’s


to keep me pulsing to your rhythm

it leaves You begging over there

on the other side

for me to let You see

my face again.

    After reading and feeling the impact of the image of Love

    begging over there, I prayed,

    Oh, Love, beg no more
    Here I am.

    It seems a radical idea that God begs for our presence as much as we beg for his. And yet when I understand that my intense yearning is only a fraction of God’s yearning, I am humbled and unashamed of my desire to be so loved.

      so beautiful….

      check out these words by rumi.

      Every thirst gets satisfied except
      that of these fish, the mystics,

      who swim a vast ocean of grace
      still somehow longing for it!

      No one lives in that yearning without
      being nourished every day.
