During my morning contemplation, I was reflecting on my personal theme for the year – Loving Connection to Source. What came to me was a Source that lives within and without, a Source that knows no beginning and no end, a Source that I would call Sophia in the Gnostic tradition or Shekinah in the Kabbala. That led me to dig out the following quote, on of my favorites. Maybe this is an experience of unity consciousness, in it’s most poetic form.
“I am the dreamer and the dream. I am the every thing that is nothing, the spark of the soul, fire of the heart, ember of love. I am up and down, top and bottom, strange and charmed. I am the woman clothed in the sun and the child swaddled in darkness. I am the tissue of contradiction, the eye in the needle, the needle in the eye. I am the insubstantial and absolute idea, and the hammer that shatters your skull. I am the colour you have not named, the light which makes all visible except itself. I am the wave of reason, the particle of faith, I am the star in the cosmos and the atom with the universe inside, I don’t seek, I find. I am the writing on the wall, the unutterable speech of the stone.”
John Dufresne, Louisiana Power and Light quoted in Diane Schoemperlen, Our Lady of the Lost and Found, p. 201
