Angelus Silesius

He who asks God for gifts
is pitiable;
he worships the creation
and not the Creator.

Angelus Silesius,
Mystic and poet
born Johann Scheffler in Wroklaw, Poland (1624-1677)

Darkness, Light

I saw that there was an ocean
of darkness and death,
But an infinite ocean of light
and love flowed over the ocean
of darkness.

~ George Fox
