Human life was created to be centered in the heart, the spiritual seat of our existence. The heart is not subject to the passions, not driven by desire and necessity. It is not the same thing as the mind. It does not compare or judge, measure or spin tales of its own existence. It simply is. It is in the heart that we know God (truly know). Its aesthetic is true beauty, found within the most ordinary of objects as well as in the greatest efforts of man. The heart is content.

This comes from a longer piece by Fr Freeman on his website Glory to God for All Things. Now I will readily admit that some of Fr Freeman’s writing goes totally over my head but there are snatches of it that are filled with truth and really resonate with me, like this little gem above.
