Things Are Not Mute

Sun and Cloud by Ant Rozetsky (via Unslpash)

“He who has realized that the sun and stars and souls do not ramble in a vacuum will keep his heart in readiness for the hour when the world is entranced. For things are not mute: the stillness is full of demands, awaiting a soul to breathe in the mystery that all things exhale in their craving for communion. Out of the world comes the behest to instill into the air a rapturous song for God…”
– Abraham Joshua Heschel
