Paradigms ~ Perspectives

“Earth’s crammed with heaven,  And every common bush afire with God;  But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,  The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.”
  Elizabeth Barrett Browning
with thanks to Shannon, my dear sister in-Christ at “Fire or Blackberries” , from whom I stole this from!
We can learn a lot from others if we will but listen in Love without agenda.

  1. Old or young? Elizabeth BB had this one nailed! Awareness is really where it’s at and most of us sleep walk from the cradle to the grave. Our post death psyche/spirit must get a bit of a shock when Ultimate Reality is revealed all at once.

  2. The third book I am writing is called ‘Awareness: Conversation on Wisdom, Awakening, and Breaking Free from Religion.” and I simply love that quote of EBB. How would I describe the spiritual life now – even simply life in general – it is all about becoming aware. Unaware people have the tendency to crucify their messiahs given the right amount of angst and power. “Forgive them Father, for the do not know what they do”
