Greatness is not what tells you to be more Great. Is there a simple resting place in this world? They say the point of it all is to create a world for Gd to dwell. There is no stillness here.
In The Sforno's commentary on The second sentance of the Torah, I just read, he speaks of "Gd HOVERING over the face of the waters" as the creation of Fire. That Indeed, The Hovering was so Active that it creates sparks out of breath Like Lovers.
There are those nowadays who use their bodies as if they were always free falling. I see them dancing and riding one another's waves, making sense of something so mysterious by stepping in,
and sometimes thoughts seem denser, or like steering wheels, and sometimes like seeds in waters of Evaporation.
