“We seek not rest, but transformation.
We are dancing through each other as doorways.”
“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.You must ask for what you really want
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.”
“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home…”
“In my dream, the angel shrugged and said,
‘If we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination.’
And then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand.”
