Fire + Water = Steam…

…and steam = POWER

Oh, God help me, what marvels there are in this greater en-kindling of fire by water. The water does not impede the fire though it’s the fire’s contrary, but rather makes its fire increase! – St. Teresa of Jesus, The Way of Perfection 19:3

These lamps of fire are living waters of the spirit…although it is fire, it is also water.
– St. John of the Cross, The Living Flame of Love Stanza 3, #8

    Alas, Brother Burrito, you’re making me think again of an earlier article on here about Professor James McAuley’s puzzling poem, the Six Days of Creation.

    Our world’s name is Bliss,
    I the firmament, you the earth.
    Like sun and rain I am poured forth.

    (It is the Lord who speaks.)
