We are Fields Before Each Other
St. Thomas Aquinas quote
How is it they live for eons in such harmony – the billions of stars –
when most men can barely go a minute without declaring war in their mind against someone they know.
There are wars where no one marches with a flag, though that does not keep casualties from mounting.
Our hearts irrigate this earth.
We are fields before each other.
How can we live in harmony?
First we need to know: we are all madly in love with the same God.
(Love Poems From God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West by Daniel Ladinsky)
