“The miracle is the vision from the other side of waiting.” Leonard Cohen Talks About Waiting For The Miracle

The miracle is the vision from the other side of waiting. There is a miracle that we are all waiting for that somehow goes along with the construction of the human heart, of the human psyche… There’s another position, where you move across the waiting, to the other side of waiting, where you recognize or acknowledge or affirm that you’re waiting for the miracle, but this is a position of freedom rather than a position that is imprisoned or fixed. Waiting is fixed, the other side of waiting is free.
