Center of our Love

Each person is born with an unencumbered spot – free of expectation and regret, free of ambition and embarrassment, free of fear and worry – an umbilical spot of grace where we were each touched by God. It is this spot of grace that issues peace. Psychologists call this spot the Psyche, theologians call it the Soul, Jung calls it the Seat of the Unconscious, Hindu masters call it Atman, Buddhists call it Dharma, Rilke calls it Inwardness, Sufis call it Qualb and Jesus calls it the Center of our Love. To know this spot of inwardness is to know who we are…by feeling our place in relation to the Infinite.  This is a difficult lifelong task… for the nature of becoming is a constant filming over of where we began.
