St. Hildegard of Bingen

The soul is the greening life force of the flesh, for the body grows and prospers through her, just as the earth becomes fruitful when it is moistened. The soul humidifies the body so it does not dry out, just like the rain which soaks into the earth.

Dare to declare who you are. It is not far from the shores of silence to the boundaries of speech. The path is not long, but the way is deep. You must not only walk there, you must be prepared to leap.

Even in a world that’s being shipwrecked, remain brave and strong.

Everything that is in the heavens, on earth, and under the earth is penetrated with connectedness, penetrated with relatedness.

The mystery of God hugs you in its all-encompassing arms.

A human being is a vessel that God has built for himself and filled with his inspiration so that his works are perfected in it.

We shall awaken from our dullness and rise vigorously toward justice. If we fall in love with creation deeper and deeper, we will respond to its endangerment with passion.

Our souls should be like a transparent crystal through which God can be perceived.

When one’s thoughts are neither frivolous nor flippant, when one’s thoughts are neither stiff-necked nor stupid, but rather, are harmonious — they habitually render physical calm and deep insight.

The soul is kissed by God in its innermost regions. With interior yearning, grace and blessing are bestowed. It is a yearning to take on God’s gentle yoke, It is a yearning to give one’s self to God’s Way.
