In your midst

I, God, am in your midst.
Whoever knows me can never fall,
Not in the heights,
Nor in the depths,
Nor in the breadths,
For I am love,
Which the vast expanses of evil
Can never still.

— Hildegard von Bingen

    What gives the soul life, within a body? The breath of god…

    A feather on the breath of God…
    I god am your midst,
    the mist

    myst-ici-sm
    mist-Isis-him
    mist (breath of god)-Isis-Hymn

    Paulo Coelho’s Eleven Minutes (last 2 digits of my birthyear add up to 11…just now realized!)

    Hymn to Isis

    For I am the first and the last

    I am the venerated and the despised

    I am the prostitute and the saint

    I am the wife and the virgin

    I am the mother and the daughter

    I am the arms of my mother

    I am barren and my children are many

    I am the married woman and the spinster

    I am the woman who gives birth and she who never procreated

    I am the consolation for the pain of birth

    I am the wife and the husband

    And it was my man who created me

    I am the mother of my father

    I am the sister of my husband

    And he is my rejected son

    Always respect me

    For I am the shameful and the magnificent one

    Thank you, for these beautiful thoughts! Love, Jane : )

    I just now found and read this poem of Hildegarde Von Bingen…(!!!)
    She and I agree –
    Dear Keith, thank you, appreciating the reading, very much. I want to read more about the Gospel of Thomas, and the image of that, fragmented…
    Enjoyed reading the speech of Desmond TuTu. So much here, feasting.
    Thank You! Love, Jane xo

    “All the arts serving human desires and needs
    are derived from the breath
    that God sent
    into the human body.”

    -Hildegard of Bingen
    (1098-1179)
