We usually live with an unconscious image of earth as a large, stable, secure place, the absolute, the center, with Heaven and Hell as barely visible points in the sky, shimmering and remote fantasies, tiny and uncertain. In fact, it is Earth that is tiny and uncertain.

This is sanity. This is the cold light of day, "the way it is". In order for us to be sane, to live in the real world, this vision would have to become habitual. We may gauge our sanity level by how habitual it is.

Peter Kreeft - p.142, Christianity for Modern Pagans ( Ignatius 1993 )
