"Concerning this tiny, hazelnut-sized cosmos, I received this answer in my soul, 'It lasts and always will because God loves it.' I saw then that everything's alive through God's love. The little thing I saw that seemed like it could vanish into nothingness because of its insubstantiality, this little thing is why our hearts and souls don't know perfect peace.
"We seek rest here in this very little thing, in which there is no rest, and we don't know our God, who is almighty, all wise, and all good--God is the only true Rest. That's why no soul is at rest until it scorns as nothing all created things.
"When the soul becomes the nothing God wants the soul to be--for love--when it wants instead to possess the Lord, who is everything, then it can accept spiritual rest"
~Julian of Norwich, Revelations~
