Postcards from Paradise: A Holy Place

There is sacred land a half-hour drive from where I live,


land that has been hallowed by the holy intent
of those who come there to connect with the earth,

to be reminded (in case they’d forgotten)
that they are divine spirits embodied for this lifetime,
whose purpose is to build a community of love and potential.

My spiritual community meets monthly on this holy ground,

singing, dancing, drumming, listening to the pipes, sharing wisdom.

It’s a place where the arms of the trees reach out to caress you,

Where all the stones sing stories of times that have passed

and times yet to come. 

Where peace -- like swinging from a star --
 seems probable, not merely possible.

Pull up a chair and soak up the energy.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.

Light and love, beautiful !

I think that many of us yearn for such a place but have yet to find it, unless we carry it in our hearts. I am grateful you have found your soul's oasis and invite us to join you.
