Man and God
One child was asking a question, “What is the difference between man and God?” And I got an answer that, like water vapour and water and ice, one is totally free; it can do what it likes, it can float about, expand, contract at choice. When it condenses, it becomes water. It’s more limited; it can flow, but has not the mobility of that. And when it yet condenses further, it becomes ice, a lump of stone which has no mobility, which is the grossest form.
