Through the within to the beyond

Cave, India

I see India not in the image of the desert, nor of the sea, nor of the garden, but of the cave. Deeper, darker, flashes in a stark symbol. Passage: through the within to the beyond.

– Jules Monchanin

God is breath…

Maximus the Confessor

God is breath,
for the breath of the wind is shared by all,
goes everywhere, nothing shuts it in,
nothing holds it prisoner.

– Maximus the Confessor (7th Century)
