Where trees turn to love...

"As the language of modern quantum phsics penetrates increasingly into the basic metaphors of theology... we can begin to see how God and creation actually exist in an energetic continuum.  

"Just as we now know that matter is actually 'condensed' energy... would it be too great a leap to say that energy as we experience it -- as movement, force, light -- is a 'condensation' of divine will and purpose?  In other words, energy is what happens when divine Being expresses itself outwardly.

"My daughter Lucy, in fact, stumbled quite innocently upon this insight at the tender age of three, when she came into my bedroom one morning singing a song she had made up:

"I'll sing you a song of God in his heaven,
where years turn to tables and trees turn to love..."

-- Cynthia Bourgeault in Mystical Hope
