The Thundered Word
I am that supreme and fiery force that sends forth all living sparks.
Death hath no part in me, yet I bestow death, wherefore I am girt about with wisdom as with wings…
I am the source of the thundered word by which all creatures were made, I permeate all things that they may not die.
I am life.
Hildegard of Bingen (1098 –1179), favorite muse of Dr. Mitchell
Medieval abbess, theologian, poet, artist, musician, scientist and healer.
