”Between the conscious and the unconscious, the mind has put up a swing.
All earth creatures, even the supernovas, sway between these two trees
and it never winds down.
Angels, animals, humans, insects by the million, also the wheeling sun and moon; ages go by, and it goes on.
Everything is swinging: heaven, earth, water, fire, and the secret one slowly growing a body.
Kabir saw that for fifteen seconds, and it made him a servant for life.”
from The Kabir Book, tr. by Robert Bly
