From Anam Cara, A Book of Celtic Wisdom John O'Donohue
...Spiritituality of friendship with the body
The body is your clay home, your only home in the universe. The body is the soul; this recognition confers a sacred and mystical dignity on the body. the sensors are devine thresholds. A spirituality of the senses is a spirituality of transfiguration....Thoughts are our inner senses...they bring out the mystery of inner landscape.
I make landscape pots now I have a better understanding why.
