She Said It in Wonder but Without Hubris

She said it as if she were outside herself, as if she were looking on from above, perhaps from a high hill.  She said it almost anthropologically -- "My soul magnifies the Glory of the Lord!"

In 20 centuries, who else has been entitled to say it?  Perhaps the bodhisattvas, but even then only in the hour of their ultimate death, when they are said to be irradiated, for all to see, in pursuit of Nothing at All.
