From “The Orthodox Way”

To contemplate nature, then, is in Blake’s phrase to cleanse the “doors of our perception,” both on the physical and on the spiritual level, and thereby to discern the energies or logoi of God in everything that he has made. It is to discover, not so much through our discursive reason as through our spiritual intellect, that the whole universe is a cosmic Burning Bush, filled with the divine Fire yet not consumed.
