She said, "you see no difference between the sacred and the secular." It was perhaps one of the best complements I've been given.
It's true. I don't see any difference. Not in the way that I do not regard the sacred with respect, but that, to me, all is sacred. My work, my science, my relationships with people-- they are all seen through the lens of the sacred. I see God's hand at work in the world and in my life, and it touches everything. Nothing is immune. "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made." (John 1:3)
I don't make distinctions. There are no boxes or categories. I live. Christ lives in me. Everything is sacred.
