The real secret

I found this on one of my favorite blogs, Wounded Bird. The blog owner, Grandmère Mimi, found it on a site called Story People:

If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can & there is nothing more to it than that.

The concept of listening to the sound of what cannot be seen is, of course, intrinsic to the "Shema" - the great declaration of faith that begins, "Hear O Israel." And what the "story writer" says above is that the sound truly sings within us.
