Glow and Shimmer
From Heather Harvilesky’s essay, The Miracle of the Mundane:
“[W]e have to see that every human is divine. We have to train ourselves to see that with our own eyes. It will fuel us, once we see it. The ordinary people around us, the angry ones and the indifferent ones, the good ones and the bad ones, will start to glow and shimmer.”
Sadly, it does take work to “see that every human is divine,” but the difficulty should not deter the effort. Thus: “We have to train ourselves to see that with our own eyes.” That the “glow and shimmer” is more apparent in some than others does not speak to the presence of the “glow and shimmer” so much as to my vision, my ability to see it.
