Description

In this weeks episode, I share a poem by Kahlil Gibran and introduce one of my favourite practices for grounding myself in the source.

The contemplation of poetry and sacred texts.

Such a practice brings release, a form of freedom from our loneliness and personal sense of suffering. It brings us into a power greater than ourselves and even offers us healing.

Often, such a practice reconciles us to the plain pain, tragedic and absurd aspects of reality through beauty and truth and connection.

Try out the reading and contemplation of poetry and spiritual texts for yourself. Take time to sit with a text which brings you fully into Being, full of thought and feeling, and yet deeper than both.

The Way, at its heart, is my effort to spread greater consciousness and presence out to the world.

I believe we all live in various stages of resistance and enlightenment. Each moment lived in presence has purpose, and liberates us. Each moment lived without it, is diminished, a turning away from the truth. We are all here to live, give, serve and die.

Contemplation of poetry and sacred texts offer us an expression of another human being's effort to express their consciousness and give their unique gift. Consciousness itself, pure and simple presence with all that occurs, that has the power to transform, and bring transcendent powers into our lives.

I hope this episode serves to deepen your presence and purpose, some laughs, and food for thought.

Christie out.
