the reenchantment of the hubris in complacency

walking deeper into....

Enchantment is both the capacity of the world to charm us & the spell that comes upon us when we open ourselves to the magic in everyday experiences. An enchanted world is alive & rich in personality. It reveals itself to us in its beauty & poetic presence. Both the realm of nature & the world of things have their magic that can stun us & ultimately make life feel worth living……Thomas Moore

this is the space of deep intuition….the land of charm….the heart of life’s gifts… finding our own way is the way of the wild soul, weaving the ups & down into a beauteous wrap….useful on dark & stormy nights…..

the core of our enchantment is longing….for the sacred…using compassion & courage as guides….climbing….is the path soft or rocky today?

the stars hold no memory…only bliss….

Reenchantment means stepping beyond the modern traditions of mechanism, positivism, empiricism, rationalism, materialism, secularism & scientism- the whole objectifying consciousness of Enlightenment- in a way that allows for a return of soul. Reenchantment implies a release from the affliction of nihilism, ‘our culture’s cancer of the spirit.’ We move toward a new pragmatic idealism & a more integrated value system that brings head & heart together in an ethic of care, as part of the healing of the world….Suzi Gablik

  1. Enchantment is pausing in the moment and knowing consciousness is the rare gift given to us, knowing we are the universe looking at itself from the inside out….

    I’ve come across this theme a few times today….God must be sending me a message! 🙂

    Great post!

    • Funny how we ‘find’ messages on our path….God, the angels & our guides whisper…so good to reflect on where we are…..thanks for sharing…..
