Today I am watering all of my plants and saying good-bye to them for a week.  I realize the words today, "Give us this day our daily bread," and what they mean.  I can only give my plants so much water before I leave.  They can only absorb so much.  I cannot ensure their survival.  I suppose even if I am here I can't do that, but I was forced to realize that they can only drink so much, can only hold so much in their trunk, branches, stems, flowers, leaves.  I thought of it in terms of myself.  If I want to absorb more, receive more, it is for me to grow, and there is a limit, and then, I knew there isn't, and that is the place outside the glass I spoke of this morning. 

Goethe said, "To find yourself in the infinite,
                               You must distinguish and then unite."

I think it is like that.
