The Heart Staying Awake

René VoillaumeThe continuity that exists in the presence of God is not that of our consciousness, explicit as that would be in the form of images and ideas about that Presence, but it rather resides in a vigilance of love. Imaginative or intellectual attention is but a means to obtain this [loving] vigilance. The heart must stay awake, and it can stay awake, even when the whole man is applied to some work to be done.
René Voillaume (1905–2003)
