Prehension by Lucia Fernandez

pre·hen·sion: the action of grasping or seizing.

A thought transfixed me: for the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth - that love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. I understood how a man who has nothing left in this world still may know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved...For the first time in my life I was able to understand the meaning of the words, “The angels are lost in perpetual contemplation of an infinite glory.”

In the end, it is not enough to think what we know. We must live it. For only by living it can Love show itself as the greatest principle. a certain point, how we live inside takes priority. At a certain point for each of us, talk evaporates and words cannot bring Love into the open. Only the soul’s presence coming from us can attract the soul’s presence in others.

This day is a gift

Words spoken from the heart are a gift

And there is no greater gift than the soul's expression of love reflected back in the eyes of another

Let it be revealed, and cherished
