A pilgrimage of the heart

flowers and setting sun copy

Faith is not the clinging to a shrine,
but an endless pilgrimage of the heart.
Audacious longing, burning songs,
daring thoughts, an impulse
overwhelming the heart,
usurping the mind —
these are all a drive towards
serving Him who rings
our hearts like a bell.

–Abraham Joshua Heschel
