like sunlight on the earth

"I am from you, and at the same time, you have devoured me.
I melt in you since through you I froze.
You squeeze me with your hand,
and then you step on me with your foot.
This is how the grape becomes wine.
You cast us like sunlight upon the earth.
And our light, passing through the body
as if it were an open window to our Source,
returns, purified, to you.
Whoever sees that sun says,
"He is alive,"
and whoever sees only the window says,
"He is dying."
He has veiled our origin in that cup of pain and joy.
Within our core we are pure;
all the rest is dregs.
Source of the soul of souls, 
a hundred hearts are afire for you."

the sun warms all

Ama me fideliter!
fidem meam nota; 
de corde totaliter 
et ex mente tota
sum praesentialiter 
absens in remota.
Quisquis amat taliter,
volvitur in rota.
