Fused Worlds

"The eternal is not elsewhere; it is not distant.  There is nothing as near as the eternal....The eternal world and the mortal world are not parallel, rather they are fused....woven into and through each other."  John O'Donohue, in his marvelous book, Anam Cara,  points out how important this notion is to Irish spirituality.  I find it very helpful in meditating on Easter, the Risen Jesus moving easily back and forth between these fused worlds.
