“It’s not always obvious when a person is yearning. Yearning is an exquisitely private or secret condition. What is yearned is true. To yearn is to see. Yearning is the natural remedy for discontent, agitation, non-specific grievance, prickly sensibility, and similar modern ailments. Yearning is a well-tended hope which has ripened slowly into a sweet, sensuous prayer. Yearning brings poise to the imagination, a pleasant momentum to consciousness, and an angel who plays a lute which drowns out the sound of the traffic. Yearning lifts you up out of the courtroom, away from the judge, the police, the lawyers and the witnesses against you. It raises you out through the window and up into the sunshine and the beautiful blue sky”
It makes me wonder whether yearnings remain so until one expresses them openly..........until the words are found so that they can be shared with another? Or should we keep our yearnings secret as an internal motivator to be self directed in our actions?
thank you katie for sending me this wonderful quote.........i just had to share ........... see you soon!!
