"We are warmed by fire, not by the smoke of fire.
We are carried over the sea by a ship, not by the wake of a ship.
So, too, what we are is to be sought in the invisible depths of our own being,
not in our outward reflection in our own acts."
Smoke or fire? Wake or ship? Focusing on the outer appearances using smoke & mirrors? Or reflecting in the invisible depths? Where do you find yourself today?
