It is [the] flash of realization of not-two-ness, that is both the centre and the endpoint of our human experience.
In every seed of every weed, in the knee-joint of a dead wasp’s leg, the structure of the Whole of Reality is laid bare for those who have eyes to see.
Our brain filters out the overwhelming poignancy of this Structure of Reality, of the Divine, as it manifests in all that is.
The eye, however, when it awakens, sees all things as “unseparated” from itself, to speak with Eckhart*.

an incredible image, as if the ocean is contained in one small drop, where one tiny wasp’s leg has great presence.
Diana, your eye is truly awake! Thank you for leaving these words, the trace of your vision …
