Our most urgent need, the most important issue, deserving of all our focus and energies, is to love Him. Nobody can teach you this, bring it to your attention, or lead you to it. It’s the condition of your being, the basis of your existence. Without it, you are a shadow. Without this pain, you are miserable. This longing, and you know what I’m talking about, it is what you are. It is who you are.
