We are used to opposing heaven and earth, yet heaven and earth are not two opposite or even separate worlds: not only are they in constant contact with one another, their exchanges sustain life in the universe.
Heaven and earth – or take even more concretely the sun and the earth. They too exchange continuously, but we only see the more material aspect of these exchanges – the sun’s rays that shine down on us.
We see nothing of all that also rises from the earth towards the sun. Yet some particularly sensitive people have been able to see entities descend from the higher regions to work on human beings, animals and stones, then leave once their work was done.
There are extraordinarily poetic stories on this subject.
One day, all of humanity will be able to behold the creatures that come and go between the earth and the sun, and even further still.
