Creation, then, at its core, is about relation. It is the spiraling, dancing, crouching, spiring, leaping, surprising act of relatedness, of communing, of responding, of letting go, of being. Being is about relation. Eckhart says that, "relation is the essence of everything that exists and that "isness is God." - Matthew Fox
