TO GLIMPSE TRANSCENDENCE IN THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
We see a figure with arms outstretched to the sea and the sky and the very heavens. The figure stands upon a seashore. Darkness is coming, but everything is alight with the radiance of the setting sun. This is our Mother Earth, our precious Gaia at her most sublime and sacred. Infinity is embraced in the figure’s outstretched arms. This is a figure who is transcendent in the spiritual quest. This is spirituality that transcends religion. Here, in the radiant light of the setting sun, the figure is deep in a profound spiritual awakening. How can we not love our Mother Earth, and our Mother Earth’s life-giving environment at such times of transcendent meaning? Thus, is the truth and the reality of the spiritual and mystical meaning of our lives, and our environment, and our Mother Earth, and our Gaia, and all of our Holy Cosmos given to us, to embrace us and spiritually awaken us. There is no religion in this transcendent vista of our Mother Earth and Her ability to speak to us. There is no exclusivity of exclusive religious paths. There is just the ONENESS of transcendence. In one mere sense She is outside of us. But in those sublime moments of transcendence, She is within; She is US. There is no OTHER on the spiritual quest that leads us into the mystical and sacred knowing of our ONENESS with the ALL, of our ONENESS with the Divine. And it is these moments of profound knowing, of profound spiritual awakening that we must become ONE with. Our holistic destiny is to be ONE with the ALL, and this is the very meaning of our sacred quest. It is not only all that we take with us when we die; it is the ALL that is US that we take with us into eternal life. And there lies the great healing of ourselves and our world: the spiritual unfoldment of US, into the eternal spiritual and sacred awakening of our ONENESS with the ALL.
The world outside us is debatable,
Is often beyond our reach.
But our world within is ours, is US,
Is what we take when we depart this world.
