Julian of Norwich - I am Ground of thy beseeching
Type of Spiritual Experience
One of the most intriguing parts of the revelations was the following. So, remembering that it is the composer speaking.
‘I, as your composer/higher spirit put thoughts into your head, so that your will thinks they are your thoughts and desires. Having acquired this desire/objective which is really mine, you pray and ask for what I implanted in your mind. So why shouldn’t I give you what you want, given that it is actually what I wanted you to want’.
A description of the experience
Julian of Norwich – Revelations of Divine Love
I am Ground of thy beseeching:
first it is my will that thou have it;
and after, I make thee to will it;
and after, I make thee to beseech it and thou beseechest it.
How should it then be that thou shouldst not have thy beseeching?
