The First Mystery

"The first mystery is simply that there is a mystery. A mystery that can never be explained or understood. Only encountered from time to time. Nothing is obvious. Everything conceals something else. . . . Spiritual awareness is born of encounters with the mystery."
Honey from the Rock

Extending the Boundaries of the Sacred

"Blessings keep our awareness of life's holy potential ever present. They awaken us to our own lives. . . . With each blessing uttered, we extend the boundaries of the sacred and ritualize our love of life."
The Book of Words

Transcending Self

"By doing what your lover wants, you transcend yourself. So it is with all sacred deeds. We give ourselves over to them, humbly offer ourselves as servants of something or someone greater. In so doing, we are transformed."

You Are Where You Are Supposed to Be

"God puts you where God needs you. You are where you are supposed to be. The job you are doing may not be any easier on account of this, indeed it may be harder, even more urgent, but now you are centered, focused, clear."
