Love and fear (of God) – Amor y temor (de Dios)

Some dreamers think: if you love God, then all
Is well. But they forget: not any call
To God will He accept; you are a fool
If you ignore that Love requires Rule.

For in the mystery of Love is Fear;
Through pious distance only you come near.

—Frithjof Schuon



Algunos que sueñan piensan: si amas a Dios todo está bien.
Mas olvidan que Dios no acepta cualquier llamada. Eres un tonto
si ignoras que el Amor requiere una regla. Pues el misterio del Amor
contiene el temor. Sólo con una piadosa distancia te podrás acercar.

–Frithjof Schuon
