In response to In response to 13


          


Well, your pithy play gym certainly engaged my thinker ! I have watched my mind realize once again that it can never fathom the big stuff and relax into the wonder . Below are some quotes from the Irish poet/scholar John O’Donohue who has much to say on the theme of absence/presence in his book ‘Eternal Echoes’.

“Absence is such a powerful theme because such a vast quantity of our identity lies out of reach in (the) unknown and largely unknowable region (of our subconscious)”

“ There is also a whole region of the absent which embraces not the vanished but that which has not yet arrived.... events, persons, thoughts and novelties ahead which have not yet arrived. This is the territory of the unknown.”

“Much of our thinking endeavors to invite the unknown to disclose itself. This is especially true of questions. The question is the place where the unknown becomes articulate and active in us. The question is impatient with the unrevealed. It reaches forward to open doors in the unknown. The question attempts to persuade absence to yield its concealed presences.”
