I, the highest and fiery power, have kindled every living spark and I have breathed out nothing that can die….I flame above the beauty of the fields; I shine in the waters; in the sun, the moon and the stars, I burn. And by means of the airy wind, I stir everything into quickness with a certain invisible life which sustains all….I, the fiery power, lie hidden in these things and they blaze from me.”

– Hildegard of Bingen
