Measured in Desire Not Miles

中文: Chinese Version

When you feel drawn to reach out to God, be encouraged by these words from the 14th century:

“The spiritual realm is always near, enveloping us on every side. Whoever has a strong desire to be with God is already there, spiritually. Measure the distance to God’s presence in terms of desire, not miles.”

— adapted from The Cloud of Unknowing (Paraclete Press)

When we earnestly desire God, we are being drawn into his heart. It is a spiritual location. It is not measured by position in the space-time universe. Our soul’s “location” is determined by our desire for God.
