"MUSIC OF HEAVEN I"
"Spirited light! on the edge of the Presence your yearning burns in the secret darkness,  O angels, insatiably into God’s gaze. Perversity could not touch your beauty; you are essential joy.  But your lost companion, angel of the crooked  wings – he sought the summit,  shot down the depths of God and plummeted past Adam – that a mud – bound spirit might soar."  St Hildegard von Bingen

"BREATH of GOD  II" 
"Underneath all the texts, all the sacred psalms and canticles, these watery varieties of sounds and silences, terrifying, mysterious, whirling and sometimes gestating and gentle must somehow be felt in the pulse, ebb, and flow of the music that sings in me. My new song must float like a feather on the breath of God."  St Hildegard

~ THOUGHTS ~
 HEALING THROUGH ART
'It was self expression that eventually was the healing for Hildegard.- Letting go of the 'I can't' syndrome that would end her human, physical  suffering. It was not the product but the process of meditation that healed her.
+
'every element has a sound, an original sound from the order of God; all those sounds unite like the harmony from harps and zithers.
+
The earth which sustains humanity must not be injured, it must not be destroyed.
+

LITURGICAL SONGS AND POEMS
She wrote theological, botanical and medicinal texts, as well as letters, liturgical songs, and poems, while supervising brilliant miniature illuminations, one of which is included here.

SHE INSPIRES EACH OF US
TO OPENESS AND GROWTH
A trip to the Rhine, took us to Bingen Germany as they were getting ready to celebrate her 900th year of birth.  She had caught my attention years ago because of her remarkable life but moreso her sensitivity to the fullness of all that is ours to understand. How many of us truly understand that music and color are one?
