“A fortunate few carry with them through life the vision of the innocent years. The rest of us must work hard to retrieve the light that is so freely given to us at birth. But if, in reverence for all life, in patient observation, in sorrow, and in compassion, the veil of darkness falls from our eyes, then it is we who are the lucky ones. For in full consciousness we have reached back into Paradise before the Fall. We have earned that which every child inherits unearned.”
―Rosamond Reinhardt, from the introduction
Who with the eye of reverence may discern
How crystals form within the soul of the Earth,
Watch in the quickening seed the clear flame burn,
In life see death, and in decay new birth ...
He who has found his kin in man and beast
And in that kinship God’s own Brotherhood,
At the High Table of the Grail shall feast,
Sup with the Lord of Love, taste holy food ...
He, seeking, finds (God’s promise shall suffice)
The pathway to forgotten Paradise.
