Moses and God's grandeur

These days reading about Moses and his missionary command, I am reminded of this nice quote:
Earth is crammed with Heaven.
And every bush aflame with God.
But only those who see take off their shoes -
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861), Aurora Leigh

I suppose, this is exactly what we lose as years go by after our profession: that SPARK in our eyes and FIRE in our hearts and minds! It is only when we have these two do we really 'see' life and reality anew - subsequently effect and affect a change. If not, for these we'd only be walking corpses! Nothing more, nothing less!
