His Fathomless Abyss

“If we would meet God above the natural world, we must enter into Him by a quickened faith ; and there, in simplicity, in peace and freedom, we shall dwell, confirmed in love, in perfect nudity of spirit.
When Love has lifted us above objects, above darkness, into the Holy Light, we are transfigured by The Eternal Word, like unto the father….

We contemplate what we are and we are what we contemplate…Contemplation of the super essential passes into communion. Yet this contemplation has a furthur stage when life dies and love fails. For as we enter the darkness we are seized by the single ray, which : shining from the ocean of light where dwells our peace, immerses us in The Super Essential…

Words cannot reveal it, silence has no power to hold it within its bounds; intelligence, reason, the creature itself, all are transcended.
This simple possession By God is life eternal enjoyed in the fathomless abyss. It is herein, beyond reason that we await the Peace of The Divine changelessness."

- Van Ruysbroeck (17th Century Mystic)

Glorious words my sister,

To anchor ourselves in changelessness... is to find God.

Changeless love to you,

Maithri

Ah, I like the new look of your blog!

Wonderful post as always. The important thing to remember is that this Divine changelessness is always there within us, untouched by external circumstances. Whenever we are overwhelmed by external forces, we've got to retreat within and realize that no matter what has happened on the outside this inner silence and constancy is always holding us in its embrace.
