Love and eternity

‘He has also set eternity in the human heart’ Ecc 3:11

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
William Blake

I can see a connection between these two statements, there is something of substance here that is to be discovered. Eternity that is within us being explored, contemplated, believed and then to discover what is in creation and be able to connect the two. Is that possible? Is it possible to contemplate what/who we have within us, so we can see the world the same as the creator sees it, and in seeing can we touch it with the eternal? Is it possible to release the eternity that is within our spirit into our consciousness so we can experience the eternal here and now?
Love as an experience can be overwhelming, those moments when you feel your heart is expanding and it is almost as if it might explode if you don’t draw back from the intensity. We call it awe inspiring and we could say it is the breath of God on our deposit of eternity.
Love is the most powerful force and when we allow love to engage with our eternity there may well be an explosion.
Have a ponder and in the meantime, love.
