Touch...


By David Whyte:

...is what we desire in one form or another, even if we find it through being alone, through the agency
of silence or through the felt need to walk at a distance: the meeting with something or someone other than ourselves, the light brush of grass on the skin, the ruffling breeze, the actual touch of another’s hand; even the gentle first touch of an understanding which until now, we were formally afraid to hold.

Whether we touch only what we see or the mystery of what lies beneath the veil of what we see, we are made for unending meeting and exchange, while having to hold a coherent mind and body, physically or imaginatively, which in turn can be found and touched itself. We are something for the world to run up against and rub up against: through the trials of love, through pain, through happiness, through our simple everyday movement through the world.

And the world touches us in many ways, some of which are violations of the body or our hopes for safety: through natural disaster, through heartbreak, through illness, through death itself. In the ancient world the touch of a God was seen as both a blessing and a violation - at one and the same time. Being alive in the world means being found by the world and sometimes touched to the core in ways we would rather not experience.

Hell Invented by Church to Control People with Fear...

This video is of an interview retired Episcopal bishop John Shelby Spong did with Keith Morrison of Dateline NBC back in August of 2006.

People don’t need to be born again. They need to grow up. They need to accept their responsibility for themselves and the world."  

"God is not a Christian. God is not a Jew or a Muslim or a Hindi or Buddhist. All of those are human systems, which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition. I walk through my tradition. But I don’t think my tradition defines God. It only points me to God.

The Real Cause of Cancer...

Every page of this web/blog is dedicated to the expression of a revolution in human consciousness, revealed in the Awakened Imagination, as the cause of all phenomenon. Clearly, health or disease is caused by the "inner" life of the individual more than the "outer".  Here, Andreas Moritz, explains the true cause of cancer and eloquently shows us that disease is fundamentally psycho-somatic and comes from our state of mind... Which is exactly what we have been teaching about the relationship between the Human Imagination and reality. As a close friend and contemporary of Che's, that she befriended while living in Minnesota, we thank you with all our heart! Andreas Moritz... R. I. P.
