Everything is saying something
Back in the summer of 2013 I suppose I can say I heard the voice of deeper meaning speak to me.
I think all of us can hear it if we attune ourselves. As I was given some flowers including some dog roses with ugly thorny stems yet sweet smelling aroma I wondered if they held a deeper message of truth or wisdom, a bit like the ugly duckling metaphor. I sensed the Truth speaking back to me, saying, ‘everything says something about Me’. It was a spiritually catalytic and influential moment, where I turned from irregular, measured contemplation of certain things to a more unitive contemplation of everything. I’d suspected, as many of us do, that nature, music, art, literature, systems, structures, science – life in all its richness - held clues to deeper, ultimate truths. The journey of discovery since then has been like wearing glasses in a formerly hazy world. This recently discovered quote by the medieval mystic Meister Eckhart sums it up beautifully, for me.
