Living consciously

He is intensely aware of and knows himself to be at one with the active World of Becoming, that immanent Life from which his own life takes its rise. Hence, though he has broken forever with the bondage of the senses, he perceives in every manifestation of life a sacramental meaning; a loveliness, a wonder, a heightened significance which is hidden from other men. He may, with St Francis, call the Sun and the Moon, Water and Fire his brothers and sisters: or receive with Blake the message of the trees….he has attained the power of communion with the living reality of the universe.

— Evelyn Underhill
