I row my beautiful, temporary body through this water-lily world.
∆ Mary Oliver, from Thirst; Six Recognitions of the Lord.
Where does unbelief begin? / When I was young / there were degrees of certainty. / I could say, Yes I know that I have two hands. / Then one day I awakened on a planet of people whose hands / occasionally disappear–
| Anne Carson, Glass, Irony and God
“As above, so below. The human being finds himself, or herself, in the middle. There is as much space outside the human, proportionately, as inside. Stars, moons, and planets remind us of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Is there a bigger being walking with all the stars within? Does our thinking affect what goes on outside us, and what goes on inside us? I think it does.”
