"To love another person is to see the face of God."
~~quote from the final scene of the musical Les Miserables
Just when I think my heart can contain no more, love finds me and opens me still further to all that is. I am in awe of the abundance of love I find dwelling in the deepest parts of my soul. When I stand back and look at myself loving another, I can understand why people believe in the idea of a god. Love does somehow seem so much bigger than us. It seems to engulf us and expand us all at once. The consuming fire and the cooling wave. The yin, the yang and all that lies between.
I see in the eyes of the beloved a divinity that cannot be defined, a nameless god, an altar to the sublime. And I will worship there all the days of my life.
