Hidden Movements of the Heart

In prayer, in deep prayer, there are hidden movements of the heart. Like gravity, there is a pull to silence, a gentle impulse, hardly perceptible, yet exerting its influence all the time. Love is the specific gravity of the soul and that to which we give our heart is a force in our lives. If we give our hearts to good things, our lives feel the tug of what is good. If to evil, evil things. But if to God, not only do evil things lose their influence over us, but we come to possess all the good things we have ever hoped for in a more marvelous way. This is because all that is good, holy, noble, beautiful and true is enveloped and established in the gentle mystery of His presence. For God's part, the Holy Trinity burns with all the warmth and light of perfect, uncreated and eternal friendship, a love never ceasing with the full force of divine passion to share all of this with us - and to give so much more - and this in a secret and tender exchange of hearts. Who would know there was such power unfolding in spiritual movements so subtle we are scarcely aware of them?
