A cathedral in mind
“A pile of rocks ceases to be a rock pile when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Not everyone is capable of seeing past present realities to grasp what is possible in difficult or unappealing situations. Yet the alchemy of a transformative idea can render the most humble material into breathtaking splendor. As we negotiate the trials of life, whether menacing or mundane, may we have the faith and vision to see beyond immediate limitations to the magnificent possibilities waiting to be revealed.
