* Heart & Truth *

The heart's love of truth is not
.a thought or an idea
It is not a matter of trying to live
according to an ideal. It's not a motive
that comes from the mind. It is an impulse
from the depth of the soul, a deeply felt
motive from the heart. It is not that we
think and deliberate and decide that truth
is good for us, so we end up wanting it. Love
of the truth is not utilitarian. The truth
often ends up being utilitarian, but that is
not what inspires the right attitude for
the journey. The correct attitude is that of
.a lover who wants to be close to the Beloved
