Thomas Berry – Evening Thoughts

We need to reflect that our individual delight in the song of the birds or the sound of the crickets and cicadas in the evening is enhanced not diminished when we listen together in the evening with our families and our friends.

The songs that we hear draw us into the intimacy of the same psychic space. So with music of Beethoven, it draws an unlimited number of persons into the same soul space.

Perhaps our greatest resource for peace is in an awareness that we enrich ourselves when we share our possessions.

The very structure and functioning of the universe and of the planet Earth reveal an indescribable diversity bound in an all-embracing unity. The heavens themselves are curved over the Earth in an encompassing embrace.
