Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires... by Aleonart

Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires... by 

Watercolor, ink, paper

“Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.”
(Songs 3:5)

Having lost His presence the Soul desperately searches for the Lord. Only on completing her own work of searching for God does the Beloved get fellowship with Him again. Now she is at rest on the turquoise carpet of grace with golden letters of verses from Psalm 23 on it:
“He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters” (Ps.23:2)
On her clothes flowers are blooming, flowers of hope for the Lord, and deer are grazing in safety.
Sleep, Beloved Soul. Muster strength for a new day.

    Pastures…. waters…. the Soul is an Anima..
    and the Anima is in a quiet slumber,
    It may be .. may appear that the Lord can do without her..
    so powerful he seems… and is declared..
    but he can not..
    All the reason for greening, driving Life around the Unierse..
    is there…in the Anima..
    so calm and unconcerned about needs
    that in time… he will have to call her out… to..insaminate the Light of the Earth.
    Rosa (precious…. )
