bibliomancy for a capricorn-cancer full moon

d sinclair ’06

“In the Florentine view the human body was a manifestation of the soul. It was possible to entertain a soulless notion of the body, but that was considered an aberration. Such a body was unnaturally split off from the soul. We might call it schizoid – lifeless, meaningless and without poetics. But an ensouled body takes its life from the world’s body, as Ficino said, “the world lives and breathes, and we can draw its spirit into us” What we do to the world’s body, we do to our own. We are not masters of this world, we participate in its life.” (Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul, p 172)
