Hi Brian,
Here is an article by Swami Vivekananda on the topic of bhakti or devotion.

Go to volume 2 and then on Bhakti. It discusses what it means to love, what it means to long for God. Worth reading.

We also come to "isness". The window useful for being emptiness in a wall, the cup useful for its empty place to hold... something.

"One and simple in every way is the one God whom charity loves in all things - nothing else outside him and beyond him!" Eckhart posits the eternal purposefully.

Omnipotent, omniscient - oh, and containing all outside of time. Truly, I do see Joshu's "mu" when face to face with this beyond the beyond. So much reality, there must be a grand pause somewhere/somewhen.

I live with this picture: an unstoppable love, (call it energy, attraction, awareness) that amplifies every time I am conscious of being. I contain, ala Whitman, universes.

Kudos to the religion-less, liking their tea on the balcony, rather than their coffee by the TV.
