Love vs. Justice

what happens
to the scale
when love
holds it.
It stops

D. Ladinsky, Love Poems From God p. 238

Have you ever read "The Awakened Heart" by Gerald May? (probably, since you're a spiritual director) I am re-reading it currently and this quote fits so well with what I am reading. Thanks.

this is one of the annoying factors of aging.......trying to remember what i have and haven't read, watched on DVD and/or TV, and discussed in previous conversations with people whose names i can't recall..........i do know i've read gerald may on addictions......perhaps i have read the awakened heart - perhaps i have not.....i'm off to the library today to see if i recognize the book (of course it also might already be sitting on one of my many bookshelves:)
