"You must not know too much or be too precise or scientific about birds and trees and flowers and water . . . a certain free margin, and even vagueness--perhaps ignorance, credulity--helps you in your enjoyment of these things." Walt Whitman (I interpret that last part to mean that you can miss the very thusness or being or inscape of what is there: crudely, perhaps, you risk missing the forest for the trees.)
And Thich Nhat Hanh wrote: "The entire cosmos can sing to us with the voice of a wild flower." IF we know how to hear that voice--John Daido Loori tells us it means we must hear with our eyes.
