A Fish Cannot Drown In Water


“A fish cannot drown in water,
A bird does not fall in air.
In the fire of its making,
Gold doesn’t varnish:
The fire brightens.
Each creature God made
Must live in its own true nature;
How could I resist my nature,
That lives for oneness with God?”

—Mechtild of Magdeburg
from “Women in Praise of the Sacred”, edited by Jane Hirshfield, p. 87

“The search for meaning is really the search for the lost chord. When the lost chord is discovered by humankind, the discord in the world will be healed and the symphony of the universe will come into complete harmony with itself.”
