Being empty, being filled

As I feel, see, absorb the seasons changing, as I read the Psalmists profound observations of God, creation, and human nature, I am once again reminded of how I need to let go of my dependency on possessions, things, and status. God is the flow of life and creation, not me. I must be as empty as possible for Him to fill me.

Searching for God

“I know that the fact that I am always searching for God, always struggling to discover the fullness of Love, always yearning for the complete truth, tells me that I have already been given a taste of God, of Love and of Truth. I can only look for something that I have, to some degree, already found.  How can I search for beauty and truth unless that beauty and truth are already known to me in the depth of my heart?….We were innocent before we started feeling guilty; we were in the light before we entered into the darkness; we were at home before we started to search for a home. ”  Henri Nouwen
