All Shall Be Well

On this day in 1373 Julian of Norwich began writing down an account of a series of visions that occurred during an illness.

I have to admit she seems crazy as a bedbug to me.

And…

There’s something Hakuin like in her, as well, another bedbug crazy wise person.

And, her “all shall be well” echoes for me Yunmen’s sublime and haunting koan, “everyday is a good day…”

Strange.

Compelling.

Lovely, in that great leap of heart way…

    “And I saw no difference between God and our Substance: but as it were all God; and yet mine understanding took that our Substance is in God: that is to say, that God is God, and our Substance is a creature in God… We are enclosed in the Father, and we are enclosed in the Son, and we are enclosed in the Holy Ghost. And the Father is enclosed in us, and the Son is enclosed in us, and the Holy Ghost is enclosed in us…”
