The son of man has no place to lay his head because this is a journey.
One of my heroes is Bernadette Roberts, a former dis cult, Carmelite nun, who’s had an incredible life, but she speaks of this business of God as simply the unknown, something we will never know. But the whole biological structure, the whole life system is a journey into that unknown and the idea of God, that which goads us and keeps pulling us on is like the horizon. Boy, it’s right there and so we work like heck and find that the horizon is always there beyond us and that’s the unknown. And yet we’re driven by that unknown to discover what it is. To me this is the whole biological system, what it all is about. It’s that very movement into the unknown, and what is culture, an attempt to shut off the unknown, concretize it, make a golden calf of it, fall down and worship it and it which you feel saved. The other is safety is a luxury that you can’t afford. That was another one of the model Jesus’ notions, you know, of throwing yourself away. The son of man has no place to lay his head because this is a journey. Michael said something about this, the journey into the unknown at any rate is what we’re really in to. You remember Plutons ,the great Greek Philosopher said that the universe is love attempting to express itself. We say what’s love, well heck we all know what love is as an infinite upon infinite, intimate gradations of expression and through this the creative process is finding it’s own reflection.
