Your second casting out

Out from Eden we were cast as out from childhood into sweat of brows. It is a story of adolescence, of meeting manhood, womanhood. The way back is barred. You must now, in age if not earlier, go through a second casting out. Here you enter your flowering.

Rather inviting
Wouldn’t you like here
To live?

Condition of heroines

In conversation we find ourselves somewhen else—totally present here and now but also together, larger, and in an intersection with an eternity, a when out of time—now we are in the condition where gods and heroines and titans find themselves.

Footprints in the Windsm # 2312–Meet Thou to Thou?

Footprints in the Windsm # 2312

Ought we acknowledge the four or seven directions? Probably not because this does not come out of us, this myth does not reside in us. But we can acknowledge our other and who that other person represents. In our times, we don’t have a way to do that—we must invent it. Perhaps better said, we must invest it—with our own spirits, intentions, reality. We are then claiming this place-time as of profound relevance. The question is, can we let these—or some—spiritual principles inform our conversation, our meeting, our relationship? Can we meet Thou to Thou?
