All love has its own power nor can love in the soul of the lover be idle; it necessarily urges on. Do you wish to know the quality of love? See where it leads.

*St. Augustine, “Psalm 121: The Ecstasy of Love, in Augustine of Hippo: Selected Writings; The Classics of Western Spirituality.

Love is necessarily expansive, always leading onward to where one has never been, to where a community has never been. The new terrain, inner and outer, is where Love leads. Love does not seek first to conserve, but to expand, explore, experiment. Love seeks the greater freedom beyond the freedom of yesterday. Love seeks new ground to walk upon. Love sees in the flight over the precipice the never-before breaking in. While persons acting from un-Love resists such expansiveness, seeing the chaos it engenders as too uncomfortable to bear and, often, evidence of error, Love says, “Those who are lovers, I, Love, lead on.”
