And what delights can equal those…..





“And what delights can equal those 
That stir the spirit’s inner deeps, 
When one that loves but knows not, reaps
A truth from one that loves and knows?”


~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

Rhythms of Valentine’s Day #3 . . . . unalloyed and unconditional love.




  

Your material offerings are neither going to reach unto the Supreme Lord ,
nor does HE need them. 
Offer HIM what is up to HIS dignity. 
Offer HIM love…. 
unalloyed and unconditional love.

Rhythms of Valentine’s Day




  

With Valentine’s Day approaching, here is a little celebration in images,…
one that illustrates a tale about the undying love between
a young girl and a curious Bear-Boy.


“Violette and Ourson,” written by Sofiya Feodorovna, Countess of Segur, mid 19th century.

The Lord of Love is before and behind.



  

“The Lord of Love is before and behind.
He extends to the right and to the left.
He extends above; he extends below.
There is no one here but the Lord of Love.
He alone is; in truth, he alone is.”
.
~ Mundaka Upanishad

The Tree of Love



  



The tree of love its roots hath spread 
deep in my heart, and rears its head;
rich are its fruits: they joy dispense;
transport the heart, and ravish sense.
In love’s sweet swoon to thee I cleave,
Bless’d source of love . . . ,
.
St. Francis of Asissi

We must love them both—

 


“We must love them both—
those whose opinions we share,
those whose opinions we don’t share.
They’ve both labored in the search for truth
and have helped us in finding it.”
.

Thomas Aquinas
