|A Cottage by the Sea||
I want more ideas of the soul-life. I am certain that there are more yet to be found. A great life--an entire civilization--lies just outside the pale of common thought…A nexus of ideas exists of which noting is know…a cosmos of thought. There is an Entity, a Soul-Entity, as yet recognize;…it is in addition to the existence of the soul; in addition to immortality; and beyond the idea of the deity…There is so much beyond all that has ever yet been imagined.
The Story of My Heart, Richard Jefferies
(quoted in The Mystic Vision, compiled by Andrew Harvey and Anne Baring)
Yesterday was my brother's birthday. Of course I didn't forget, how could I forget this best-ever brother! He lives on the coast, but not my Atlantic coast, the Atlantic. His coast is the Pacific, where he is now celebrating with family. They have a special place they go, their version of a cottage by the sea. Same but different. It is where they find silence, solitude, and simplicity. That doesn't mean no noise, no people, no things to do. It is where they can experience peace, patience, and prayer.
