I am in the presence of God. I am in the presence of the mystery of the love of God.
I live this mystery of the love of God in every moment of my existence.
The love of God is like the ocean and I am a drop within this immensity. But I am a drop of water that never loses its own identity. God knows and loves me as an individual person. In a Chinese tale the little fishes of the sea, swimming in the depth of the ocean, speak up and ask of their elders: where is the water? The drops of water in the ocean do not live separated, isolated, independently from the water of the sea; rather, every drop is completely integrated totally as part of the water.
I, for all my individuality, do not live separated, isolated, independently from the love of God. Everything that I am, that I have, my dreams, my aspirations, are integrated into the mystery of the love of God.
How can I ask: Where does one discover the love of God? It is as if the small fishes in the depths of the ocean would ask: Where is the water? I am submerged in the love of God. The love of God is closer to me than the air that I breathe, the sound that I hear, and the fragrance that I smell.
