A Mystic Meditation by Anthony de Mello, SJ

"How does one seek union with God?"

"The harder you seek,
the more distance you create
between Him and you."

"So what does one do
about the distance?"

"Understand that it isn't there."

"Does that mean
that God and I are one?"

"Not one. Not two."

"How is that possible?"

"The sun and its light,
the ocean and the wave,
the singer and his song
-- not one. Not two."
