after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire.

I have a feeling that my boat
has struck, down there in the depths,
against a great thing.
And nothing happens!
nothing… silence… waves…
...nothing happens? Or has everything happened,
and are we standing now, quietly, in the new life?

"To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant,
to enact gratitude is generous and noble,
but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven".
