Life continues outside and beyond all opposites.
There find as well the spirit of Man's capacity.
There shall He dissolve himself in passion for Himself,
and so immersed shall He live out of that space, out of
His place beyond all opposites
in posession of an equal composure,
a balance of passion and distance.
That is Man's shape in the relationship,
Heaven, Earth, Man.
It is also the basis for his passionate
love for the beauty found in other living things.

with a nod to Gustie Herrigal, wife of Eugen. Along with her husband, Gustie also was a writer. She wrote one published book, Zen in the Art of Flower Arrangement, an intended companion volume to Eugen's Zen in the Art of Archery. I also found a listed essay she wrote published in at least one collection of essays on Eastern wisdom.
