An Eye That Is Single

“All earthly creatures can lift us up to God if we know how to look at them
with an eye that is single.”    Br. Felix of Cantilice

There is something untouchable,
something forever virgin at the center of every human.
It remains singularly true
in the midst all the invasive, shaming and abusive assaults
humans and nature itself endures.
Call it the radiating Mystery at the center
of our existing, searching, turning selves.
To have an eye for this Singularity,
this Source of each of us and of the universe
is liberating beyond imagination.
