"To see all things at their origin,
puts us in kinship with all that lives:
trees, birds, stars seem foreign to us
only inasmuch as we perceive them
outside of our common origin with them.
To drink at the source
of all that lives and breathes
expands the heart
and makes the blood sing,
echoing the song of all the
vital fluids of the world.
To dwell near all beginning
is to draw infinitely near
to that which creates
both the unity
and the diversity
of all beings."
The Sacred Embrace of Jesus and Mary by Jean-Yves Leloup
