Question of the day:
When has love broken through in my life?

"The saints are so aware that love is not something to be worked for-to be worked up to or learned in workshops. It breaks through now and then, in ways suddenly obvious.
Maybe it's looking at a sunset or a beloved one; maybe it's a moment of insight or a gut intuition of the foundational justice and truth of all things. But when we discover love, we want to thank somebody for it. Because we know we didn't create it. We know we didn't practice it; we are just participating in it.
Love is that which underlies and grounds all things. As Dante said, love is the energy "that moves the sun, the moon and the other stars."
