A description of the experience
Pere Teilhard de Chardin - Pensees
Lift up your head... and see the immense multitude of those who build and those who seek; see all those who toil in laboratories, in studios, in factories, in the deserts and the vast crucible of human society. For all the ferment produced by their labours, in art, in science, in thought, all is for you.
Therefore open wide your arms, open wide your heart... and welcome the wave flow, the flood, or the sap of humanity.
Take it to yourself, for without its baptism you will wither away for lack of longing as a flower withers for lack of water; and preserve it and care for it, since without your sun it will go stupidly to waste in sterile shoots.
