Reflection Word: Beloved

 

Beloved: be-love

“Every time you listen with great attentiveness to the voice that calls you the Beloved, you will discover within yourself a desire to hear that voice longer and more deeply.”

—Henri J. M. Nouwen

“Sweep out the chambers of your heart.  Make it ready.  Make it ready to be the dwelling of the Beloved.  When you depart, love will enter.  In you, void of yourself, God will display Her beauty.”

– Sufi

– Thich Nhat Hanh
