Al-‘Alim: Knowing through Form

How would it be
if you started with the big picture first—
the entirety of the universe to
the smallest cell in the human body,
to the finest realm of light, both wave and particle,
each nesting, one in another?
Or better,
how would it be to hold such things in your mind,
but lose all the bits about size, age, weight, relative speed
and keep only the energy of relationship?
Maybe we would understand then
how the bird trusts the air.
Or the fish, the water.
Or Yeshua his Abba.
