Living Transformer

“You are a living transformer.

First – the body. Things go in and come out. Food becomes energy, then excrement. The lungs are pistons. Air comes in, feeds the blood, air goes out. Everything entering your body is transformed by the transformer that you are. You are a twenty-four-hour working body-factory.”

“Whether big or small, the Unknown beckons us to move forward, explore new ways of behavior and living, touch Life at new points, connect with the ground of our Being.

The Honey of the Shoeshiner

“Through his skillful work, like a busy bee, he gathers with each perfect shoeshine the nectar of the visible and transforms it into the Honeycomb of the Invisible: into a perfection of work and an achievement that resides in a domain that is outside this world. Although his work is in the world, it is not of the world – it transcends it.”
