What you are looking for is who is looking.
– St Francis of Assisi
This is one of my favourite phrases. For me it recognises that we cannot know something unless we have experienced it ourselves. When we look for greater happiness or love it is love or happiness that is looking for itself. We are these things and we seek our way back to them. There is something infinitely hopeful in this thought.
What do you think of this quotation? Does it resonate at all?
