The Invisible World – John O’Donohue

John O’Donohue’s work is of importance to the writer, hence his frequent appearance on this blog. This brief passage captures the tone and quality of his writing and way of being, which may help to explain that….

Here’s the text, for those who have difficulty in seeing Facebook links:-

‘THE INVISIBLE WORLD

When you enter the world, you come to live on the threshold between the visible and invisible. You bring with you a sense of belonging to the invisible that you can never lose or finally cancel. There is always some magnet that draws your eyes to the horizon or invites you to explore behind things and seek out the concealed depths. You know that the real nature of things is hidden deep within them.

When you become aware of the invisible as a live background, you notice how your own body is woven around your invisible soul, how the invisible lives behind the faces of those you love, and how it is always there between you. The invisible is one of the most powerful forms of the unknown. It envelopes our every movement. It is the region out of which we emerged and the state we are destined for, yet we never see it.
