He who takes me, gives himself to me, and is himself taken by the universe.

'The Eternal Feminine' written by Teilhard in Verzy, France on the frontline, 19-25 March 1918. The above is a line from this beautiful poem and I cannot help going back over it again and again.

When we participate in love we are 'taken' by the universe and when we try to capture it and use it for some negative purpose, it disintegrates and falls apart in our fingers. Could still be reading and re-reading for some time.
