I was given a book by Kahlil Gibran to read called, The Prophet. I was reading this book because I was going through some stuff that was life changing. As I read, I contemplated what I wanted in my life.
One night, I was sitting at my desk looking over the book, not really thinking about what I was reading. My mind was somewhere else in self-indulgent pity, and I was on the verge of tears. Out of the blue a quote stood out like a burst of joy and love giving me a moment of total clarity.
It said, “When you love you, you should not say, ‘God is in my heart.’ But rather, ‘I am in the heart of God.'”
Suddenly I understood; it was as though I was caught in a river current of crisp, free-flowing life.
Love is so much bigger than what we see. Everything is loved, everything that happens, happens because we are in the heart of God. Be grateful for where you are, or, at the very least, make the best of where you are.
