The Way of God
One night I prayed, "Oh God, you know my thoughts. Why is life so hard? God spoke in the heart, "As long as you cling, you will suffer. When you give up everything, then you will be free." This freedom is akin to entering a state of drunkeness where all but God is forgotten. The bliss and joy overwhelm and there are only good works and kindness that are the after-effects. Will you drink from the cup of the Beloved? Will you take the cup he offers? Or will you stand back lost in your own sobriety?
