Were not our hearts burning within us
while he was talking to us on the road,
and opening the scriptures to us?”
—Luke 24. 13-16, 32
Don’t expect to arrive at a place of knowing.
You are on the road of discovering, my friend,
and the flame in your heart
will only inconstantly let you know
that there also walks the Beloved, who yearns
only for this one passionate delight
above all the glories of heaven:
every moment, even the least memorable,
the least noticed at all,
simply to be with you.
