I am blind






.

I am blind and do not see the things of this world; 
but when the Light comes from above, it enlightens my Heart, 
and I can see, for the Eye of my Heart sees everything.
The Heart is a sanctuary of the Center in which there is a little space 
wherein the Great Spirit dwells, and this is the Eye. 
This is the Eye of Wakentaka by which he sees all things,
and through which we see Him.

Dear Dean,

This is long overdue: Thank you for your extraordinary collection here. This is one of my favorite blogs to go to for material of a certain quality that I find sustains me. It is very helpful to be reminded that there is more to life than where I usually find myself. Thank you for repeatedly opening the doors to the wonderful and the miraculous.

most warm regards,

Luke
