Let My People Know

"Love flows in waves"


"As manifested in the Song of Songs,


love flows in waves of coming together and parting,


whether in the earthly story


as a lovers' meeting or as a search for the beloved;


or whether in the transcendent aspect


of approach


—the dis­closure of desire and the passionate mutuality of love,


or by the distancing


—as expressed by a certain hesitance or a waiting for an opportunity,


a tarrying for a stirring up of love."


–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
