Innerweave: The Wholeness Story
By Wil Alexander, PhD, Professor of family medicine, School of Medicine

Will Alexander
Have you ever wondered how time and love come together in life? The below quote by a noted theologian thinks thusly:

“You sense time and have not sensed (His) heart? You feel the stream which rushes into you, warm and red, and yet have not felt how you are loved? You seek for a proof, and yet you yourself are that proof. You seek to entrap Him, the unknown One, in the mesh of your knowledge, and yet you yourself are entrapped in the inescapable net of his might. You would like to grasp, but you yourself are already grasped. You would like to overpower and are yourself being overpowered. You pretend to be seeking, but you have long (and for all time) been found…. You would like to find God even though it be with a thousand sorrows: What humiliation that your efforts are but an empty fuss, since He has long held you in His hand. Put your finger to the living pulse of being. Feel the throbbing that in one single act of creation at once claims you and leaves you free.

        Hans Urs Von Balthasar
        Heart of the World

You may wish to own and read slowly this book by Balthasar.
