Seek Yourself in Me: Trio verison

by Darlene Franz

about

Soul, you must seek yourself in Me
And Me you must seek in yourself.

You were created for love
Beautiful, gracious, and thus
In my heart painted
Should you lose yourself, O my beloved,
Soul, you must seek yourself in Me.

But if perhaps you should not know
Where you may find Me
Do not go hither and thither,
But, if you should wish to find Me,
Me you must seek in yourself.

--St. Teresa of Avila (tr. Raimon Panikkar)

lyrics

Lyrics: Thou of I, I of Thou, Thou of I, I of Thou
Seek yourself in me, Seek me in yourself
