“A devotee in love with God feels always the pangs of separation and is therefore always enwrapped in transcendental ecstasy.”

Srimad Bhagvatam 1.6.20

“We could not seek God unless He were seeking us. We may begin to seek Him in desolation, feeling nothing but His absence. But the mere fact that we seek Him proves that we have already found Him.”

A Merton Reader, ed. by Thomas P. McDonnell, (New York: Image Books, 1989) 134
