When you no longer love yourself
But love Goodness,
You and your Beloved will become one.
When you love Him, He must love you in return;
In His charity you are drawn to Him
And the two are made one.
This is true union
That admits of no divisions.


-- from Jacopone da Todi: Lauds (Classics of Western Spirituality), Translated by Serge and Elizabeth Hughes
Poetry Chaikhana | Jacopone da Todi (Jacopone Benedetti) - When you no longer love yourself (from Self-Annihilation and Charity Lead the Soul...)
