“We are two abysses – a well staring at the sky.”- Pessoa
I was meandering online through some of Pessoa’s poetry when a pop-up ad announced unexpectedly, “GOD LOVES YOU. discover God’s love and forgiveness. God wants you to know Him”. It seemed at once incongruent and – with pessoa-esque paradox – pertinent. Surely God would love a creature which is two abysses if He Himself created this creature? Why does this unseen God want us to “know him”?
