“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The work you hold in your hands is a personal reflection on a life journey from anger and rage towards a higher awareness, or state of enlightenment. The title of the book manifested during a morning meditation on December 2, 2016. I pondered the meaning for quite some time before deciding to capture it in words, although to this day I still fascinate over these words in search of a deeper meaning. When I think I have it all figured out something magical manifests and I return to a search for meaning once again. In my yearning to understand the symbolization and meaning of eyes and feet I found the following interpretations from various viewpoints, beliefs, and religions which are shared in the following paragraphs.
“For eyes and ears are sense without sense, and what they see and hear they but report. It is not they that hear and see, but you, who put together every jagged piece, each senseless scrap and shred of evidence, and made a witness to the world you want. Let not the body’s ears and eyes perceive these countless fragments seen within the gap that you imagined, and let them persuade their maker his imaginings are real.”
