The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Interesting quote

If I put something like this up, it's only because I think it's pretty and it gives you something to think about:

"The walls of the world fly apart. I see things hurled about within the immense void..... The earth does not stop me from distinguishing all that is happening beneath my feet, in the depths of the void. At the sight, I find myself seized by a kind of shudder of divine pleasure."

-Lucretius

De Rerum Natura
