Dane Rudhyar

2.”The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.

Mathew 6:22

3.“O father, I have been made steadfast through God; I now see not with the eyes, but by the operation of spiritual energy in the powers. I am in heaven, in earth, in water, in the air; I am in living creatures and plants; I am in the womb, before the womb, after the womb. I am present everywhere.”

Utagawa Hiroshige, “Small Horned Owl on a Maple Branch under Full Moon”

“The human heart is like a night bird. Silently waiting for something, and when the time comes, it flies straight toward it.”

Hatuki Murakami, “Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage”
