In the point of rest at the center of our being, 
we encounter a world where all things are at rest in the same way. 

Then a tree becomes a mystery, 
a cloud a revelation, 
each man a cosmos of whose riches we can only catch glimpses.

The life of simplicity is simple, but it opens to us
 a book in which we never get beyond the first syllable.

~ Dag Hammarskjöld
