God is the seeker

Bluebell Walk

I am beginning now to see how radically the character of my spiritual journey will change when I no longer think of God as hiding and making it difficult as possible for me to find him, but, instead, as the one who is looking for me while I am doing the hiding.

The seeker is God

So long as we imagine
it is we who have to look for God,
we must often lose heart.
But it is the other way about —
He is looking for us.

–Simon Tugwell
