Love Does That

Love Does That 

All day long a little burro labors, sometimes 
with heavy loads on her back and sometimes just with worries 
about things that bother only 

And worries, as we know, can be more exhausting 
than physical labor. 

Once in a while a kind monk comes 
to her stable and brings 
a pear, but more
than that, 

he looks into the burro's eyes and touches her ears 

and for a few seconds the burro is free 
and even seems to laugh, 

because love does 

Love frees.

-Meister Eckhart
