Joanna Macy: A Wild Love for the World, by Krista Tippet

I live my life in widening circles

that reach out across the world.

I may not complete this last one

but I give myself to it.

I have been circling around God, that primordial tower.

I\’ve been circling for thousands of years

and still I don\’t know: am I a falcon,

a storm, or a great song?

The constrictions that my culture had made around the sacred and — just fell away like dried crusts, and I felt an excitement about being alive now in a world that itself — yes, of course, it was — my world itself is sacred.

via Joanna Macy: A Wild Love for the World, by Krista Tippet.
