And the rock was Christ

The mystical world view is one in which Christ is truly the All in all. "There is no spot where God is not." I love this image of the multi-colored, sweet tasting mountain:

One day I saw with the eyes of my eternity
in bliss and without effort, a stone.
This stone was like a great mountain
and was of assorted colours.
It tasted sweet, like heavenly herbs.
I asked the sweet stone: Who are you?
It relplied: I am Jesus.

-- Mechtild of Magdeburg
