Example text

I have been encouraged to speak so in this book. Man may be born into the world, a whole man. We are all women-folk, male or female, featured toward this birth. We are all Mary, virgin and undelivered, to whom the announcement has been made, in whom the infant grows. As I read the newspapers, talk with friends, teach my classes, I can tell the hunt is on. I can hear everyone questing, for manhood; I can hear the belling and baying, the hoofs, the trembling ground. Everywhere the mystery of man is being searched out.

Page xxii To know is to unite with in the flesh. Isn't this an inspiring reminder of Plato's "to know the good is to do the good"though by now we are very able to know and not do. For us now the doing has to be a free choice out of our destiny, without pressure. For this is what fires our hearts, is it not? To feel ourselves free to love and to live. Unbullied and unbullying. Unhaunted by a conscience made guilty by social pressures and expectations. To act from source freely. This connection between vision and practice, between knowing and creating, is richly portrayed in the experience of the young Oglala Sioux Indian Black Elk, as he tells it to John Neihardt in the book Black Elk Speaks.

As long as we are clay and as long as we can move and make move we shall learn from this book. Who is this author who challenges us to imagine "inventing yellow" or "a cherry curve" (p. 70)? She tells us that she is one who "listen[s] to what is not audible'' and tries "to say what is not speakable" (p. 146). Should we allow her to play with us this way? Is she mocking us all, or just our condition? Or is she living the ancient mystical truth of paradox and humor and letting go? Is she urging us to develop what Meister Eckhart calls "unselfconsciousness"?
