All life is holy

"Patch of Grass"

Our culture is sadly infected by the sort of dualism that causes us to believe in a separation between the sacred and the not-sacred. We can rescue ourselves from this sense of separation by realizing the following:

The world is holy. We are holy. All life is holy. Daily prayers are delivered on the lips of breaking waves, the whisperings of grasses, the shimmering of leaves.

- Terry Tempest Williams
