The Seventh Dwelling is already in us. We are deepening the consciousness of what we already have. God is an overflowing spring even in the obscurity of night. Love is now not some future event. We don’t wait till we are perfect to love. We love now in this moment. To love with the love of God inscribed in the depths of our being. We are aware of our deep poverty. We must be silent before mystery. The poet Jessica Powers says we can’t love enough. We go with our little love and offer it where we are. It represents our littleness. Do what we can as little as it is.
