Spirit and Matter

A significant objective for ancient alchemists was to redeem spirit from its apparent confinement in matter. This calling lives in each of us today, now, as we wander through this world. As we look deeply into the eyes of our brothers and sisters, as we embrace the trees and the mountains and the moon and the sea. As we encounter darkness and light . . . we honor our longing to participate in the holy processes that reveal our true nature

The path of the heart is not only one of transcendence, of the movement from matter to spirit. But is also one of descent, of dancing and playing and beholding life/light/love as it spirals out of the heavens and into our bodies; into the earth; into the mud, the mess, the chaos, and the unknown.

To companion love as its fellow traveler, as it emerges out of the stars and infuses the world of time and space . . . this is the opportunity . . . the invitation.

As we experience these vibrations flow within and through us – can we allow ourselves to touch the implications of what it really means to be an open, sensitive, vulnerable, and empowered human being? Can we discover our own unique expression, which is never going to be like anyone else’s?

No one can touch the sacred for us, can feel heartbreak for us, can know the mystery for us. It is only our uniquely embodied, enlivened, primary experience that will satisfy the longing wired into our outrageous human hearts.
