The sacred is not beyond us, but within us, and it is through our bodies, senses and intuition that we commune with divine Mystery.
“…along with the other animals, the stones, the trees, and the clouds, we ourselves are characters within a huge story that is visibly unfolding all around us, participants within the vast imagination, or Dreaming, of the world.”
~ David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous
“Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.”
~ Terry Tempest Williams, When Women Were Birds: Fifty-Four Variations on Voice
