Creative Spirit present at the heart of the world

I, the highest and fiery power,
have kindled every living spark.
A flame above the beauty of the fields.
I shine in the waters.
In the sun and moon and the stars, I burn.
And by means of the airy wind
I stir everything into quickness,
with a certain invisible life which sustains all things.
I, the fiery power, lie hidden in these things
and they blaze for me.

Hildegard of Bingen - 12th c Mystic
