Interlude

Listen to Love

From the February 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What do I need 
to listen to God?
How do I hear what Love speaks?  

Does Love need to 
turn up the volume 
to drown out 
the world noise 
clamoring outside 
my window 
or claiming to be 
my thinking? 

Does Love need to be loud?
Not in the world’s way. 

Love is like 
someone standing 
in the room with you, 
still and quiet, 
until you see 
that they were 
always there. 

Except, with Love
—She fills all space—
She is always with us, 
within, without
—existence held in Love. 

What does it take 
to listen to Love?
Just notice 
that She is here. 
Then we can know 
how much we are 
loved 
and hear what Love 
is saying.

—Kit Cornell Kurtz
