What Do You Seek?

If it is riches you seek,

Seek Wisdom Who is the source of all riches.

If it is poetry you desire,

Desire Her Who is the source of all poetry.

If it is fairness you pursue,

Pursue Wisdom Who is the source of justice (Wisdom 8:5-7).



Do not imagine there is but one way that leads to Her.

There is but your way.

Follow it to the end, and you will find Her.



(Excerpt #57 from The Love of Eternal Wisdom: A Revisioning of Saint Louis DeMontfort’s Contemplation on Divine Wisdom by Rabbi Rami Shapiro.  Book is available through Wisdom House, info@wisdomhouse.org.  $5 donation includes shipping.)

Sorrow

Truly, it is in the darkness that one finds light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us.
