Fall in Love, stay in Love

Taken from a book of prayer and meditations by Gareth Byrne.

Nothing is more practical than finding God,
that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute way.

What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination 
will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings,
what you will do with your evenings,
how you will spend your weekends,
what you will read, who you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

Fall in love, stay in love,
And it will decide everything.
