“Lord, I can approach you only by means of my consciousness, but consciousness can only approach you as an object, which you are not.  I have no hope of experiencing you as I experience the world – directly, immediately – yet I want nothing more.”

 (from My Bright Abyss by Christian Wiman pp 20-21)

How do you long to “experience” God?
