"Love is an infinite Sea whose skies are a bubble of foam.
Know that it is the waves of Love that turn the wheels of Heaven,
Without Love, nothing in the world would have life.
How is an inorganic thing transformed into a plant?
How are plants sacrificed to become rich with spirit?
How is spirit sacrificed to become Breath,
One scent is potent enough to make Mary pregnant?
Every single atom is drunk on this Perfection and runs towards It
And what does this running secretly say but " Glory be to God."
~Rumi (from Andrew Harvey "Light upon Light")
A beautiful poem. My Goddess of the Stars and the Sea novels resonate with its message.
I'll share the early meanings of the word 'sea' in my next post. It's quite fascinating!
