I love this quote from William Blake. In quieter moments of meditation or listening, you can watch your mind and gain insights into its habits and tendencies. ( The chinks in the cavern mentioned in the quote)
And below this broader sense of mental activity, you can become aware of a presence or an awareness. A deep peace. And it’s here that we touch the
infinite, which Blake also speaks of in the quote.

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.”William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
