In his very famous book ‘Les Miserables,’ Victor Hugo (1802-1885) wrote, “The Bishop’s day was full to the brim with good thoughts, good words, and good actions. Still the day was not complete if cold or wet weather prevented him from spending an hour or two in the garden before going to bed… He was alone with himself, collected. Peaceful, adoring, comparing the serenity of his heart with that of the Other, affected in the darkness by the visible splendor of the constellations, and the invisible splendor of God… Without seeking to comprehend the incomprehensible, he gazed at it. He did not study God: he was dazzled (by God).”
Time in the garden will do that… it takes us back fully into our Edenic nature. The Garden of Eden is also called Paradise and rightfully so. It is a place to be dazzled by the Father.
“To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” Jesus
