Sons and daughters of the Earth,
steep yourself in the sea of matter,
bathe in its fiery water,
for it is
the source of your life and your youthfulness
You thought you could do without it
power of thought
had been kindled in you?
You hoped the more you rejected the tangible,
the closer you would be to spirit:
that you would be more divine
if you lived in the world of pure thought,
or at least more angelic if you fled the corporeal?
Well, you were like to have perished of hunger.
You must have oil for your limbs
blood for your veins
water for your soul
the world of reality for your intellect
do you not see that the very law of your own nature
makes these a necessity for you
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
