I Am A Feather On The Breath of God …

There was once a king sitting on his throne … It pleased the king to raise a small feather from the ground and he commanded it to fly.  The feather flew, not because of anything in itself but because the air bore it along.  Thus, I am a … Feather on the Breath of God.
— Hildegard of Bingen

God is the good
and all things which proceed from him
are good.
— Hildegard of Bingen

The soul is kissed by God in its innermost regions.
With interior yearning, grace and blessing are bestowed.
It is a yearning to take on God’s gentle yoke,
It is a yearning to give one’s self to God’s Way.
— Hildegard of Bingen
