Hidden Wholeness

Tuesday, July 22

Blue forest

There is in all visible things an invisible fecundity,

a dimmed light, a meek namelessness, a hidden wholeness.

This mysterious unity and integrity is wisdom…

There is in all things an inexhaustible sweetness and purity,

a silence that is a foundation of action and joy.

It rises up in gentleness and flows out to me

from the unseen roots of all created being.

from Hagia Sophia by Thomas Merton
