I got the following quote from an article by Sylvia Maddox. She offers the quote in her article. No, I don't know who Sylvia Maddox is, I just like the quote.
There is a Celtic saying that heaven and earth are only three feet apart, but in the thin places that distance is even smaller.Here again is this suggestion of "intimacy". I have long said that for me, experiencing a moment of intimacy, whether it be with another human being or some part of nature or just an object in my presence, is an experience of the "Holy". Now I have another word for that...
But there is a sense for me that when we enter that thin place it should not be noted, it should not be labeled, it should simply be experienced. As soon as there is a word given, the experience is gone. Do you sense what I am getting at here?
If so, don't say a word!
