LOTUS LOVE

POEM – FALL IN LOVE

Attributed to Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J. (1907-1991)

Nothing is more practical than

finding God, than

falling in love

in a quiet absolute, final way.

what you are in love with,

what seizes your imagination,

will affect everything.

*

It will decide

what will get you out of bed in the morning

what you do with your evenings,

how you spend your weekends,

what you read,

whom you know,

what breaks your heart,

and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

*

Fall in Love,

stay in love,

and it will decide everything.

…what an amazing affirmation to live by…
