Today's Beautiful Gem: `It Depends on You' by Angelus Silesius (1624-1677).

"If in your heart you make a manger for his birth,
then God will once again become a child on earth."

"God whose love and joy are present everywhere,
can't come to visit you unless you aren't there."

"God is a pure no-thing concealed in now and here:
the less you reach for him the more he will appear."

Note: Angelus Silesius is the pseudonym of Johannes Scheffler,
German poet and priest.
