to visualize the sensual world

1-IMG_1946

We usually try to explain the mysterious.

It would be better to cultivate wonder and reflection.

….Thomas Moore

within this mesmerizing trance of cold and color and hope, we reconsider our roots, our rainbows, our risks….this sensory convergence measures our unified knowing, our dynamic visions, our open hearts….

When I was fifteen years old I wrote: ‘I want to live so that my life reflects the God I know.’ How we live our lives is the story we choose to tell for our children’s children to remember, reflects what we know of the Beloved, the Mystery, of that which is sacred. How you do what you do offers stories of hope or despair, of compassion or judgement, of presence or absence……Oriah Mountain Dreamer

awake in the dark

What If?
What if our religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the Temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water—the rivers, lakes and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being

    • sorry for the late reply…….I saw a shooting star last week…..like a tiny miracle just for me……and then I realized the intimacy of that moment brings us all together……big skies to you g.f.s…..

  1. What of us remains within a story, a memory, a tear? Will it matter what we knew when we are gone? In the pieces we’ve forgotten, love we gave away………grows a greener forest than we ever dared to dream. ~ Bobbie

    • this lovely attention to detail reminds me that we are the rainbow and the wonder…..such surrender in that…..love & sweet dreams to you Bobbie….sorry I am behind in commenting:)

  2. I am a fan of Thomas Moore, and your opening quote is incredible. I celebrate the discovery of spirit within nature, and how a forest can be as a church. It is in our eyes to see it. This is a spectacular post. Love it all. Thank you for sharing.

    • he is incredibly wise….I just completed an online course with him, ‘crafting your own religion,’ a wonderful accompaniment to his new book…..may you find wonder in the minutiae of your day…
