Saturday Morning: That mysterious, fiery line


Between two musical notes there exists another note, between two facts there exists another fact, between two grains of sand, no matter how close together they are, there exists an interval of space, there exists a sensing between sensing—-in the interstices of primordial matter there is the mysterious, fiery line that is the world’s breathing, and the world’s continual breathing is what we hear and call silence.

~ Clarice Lispector, The Passion According to G.H.

    • Yes. Full stop. Your thoughts remind me of Eckhart Tolle:

      Space and silence are two aspects of the same thing. The same no-thing. They are externalization of inner space and inner silence, which is stillness: the infinitely creative womb of all existence.

      and, Janet Fitch from White Oleander:

      “The nearest I’d come to feeling anything like God was the plain blue cloudless sky and a certain silence, but how do you pray to that?”

  9. Space, time, emotion, deep thought and breath take place within the stillness of life….Wonderful words and image! I so wonder what is written in French on the pillow case..I am sure it is sweet and involves love….. Tracy Chapman, I love her song “Give me One Reason” When I growl my way through her melody, it is well received…
