"The soul knows itself, the Great Spirit knows the soul. The sparrow is the Great Spirit, the Great Spirit knows the sparrow. because the Great Spirit is the trembling leaf, the trembling leaf is the Great Spirit. Throughout the whole of the universe and worlds which are not yet known to you, the laws of the Great Spirit reign supreme. The universe is but the reflection of the Great Spirit.
Can a fly understand the world? Can the fish realise what the life of the bird is? Can a dog reason like a man? Can the stars understand the sky? Can you understand Great Spirit, who is greater than all your minds? But you can learn to express your soul, so that, when no words pass your lips and in the silence of your own soul, your spirit reaches out for communion with the Great Spirit. Then you know that He and you are one. It is not possible to express that in language, but it is expressed in the silence of the soul within you and within every soul in the universe."
