POETRY: The Inward Stirring by John Ruysbroeck

The Inward Stirring by John Ruysbroeck

The inward stirring and
touching of God
makes us hungry and yearning;
for the Spirit of God hunts our spirit;
and the more it touches it,
the greater our hunger
and our craving.
And this is the life of love in
its highest working,
above reason and above understanding;
for reason can here neither
give nor take away from love,
for our love is touched
by the Divine Love.
