know thyself


God wishes to be known,
And it pleases Him that
We rest in Him;
For all that is beneath Him
Will never satisfy us.
Therefore no soul is rested
Til it is emptied of all things
That are made.
When, for love of Him,
It is empty,
The soul can
Receive His deep rest.

–Julian of Norwich
(1342-c. 1423)
For He is the Very Rest
