“Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.”
As human beings we must experience in order to feel, absorb in order to interpret, and desire in order to understand.
“From the beginning we were meant to experience, interpret, revel in, and unravel the mysteries of this gift – Life – through our senses” Diane Ackerman tells us in her book, A Natural History of the Senses. “Luckily most of us are born fully sentient beings, able to perceive the world with all its gushing beauty and terror, right on our pulses.”
Today I ask that we open our hearts to the mysteries surrounding us, being blessed to feel their vastness within our soul.
