It Is I

I am that living and fiery essence of the divine substance
that glows in the beauty of the fields.

I shine in the water,

I burn in the sun and the moon and the stars.

Mine is the mysterious force of the invisible wind.

I sustain the breath of all living.

I breathe in the verdure and in the flowers,

and when the waters flow like living things,

It is I…I am Wisdom…I am Life.

(Hildegard of Bingen)
