Dear Inner Circle,
When we touch the Earth, we take refuge in it. We receive its solid and inclusive energy. The Earth embraces us and helps us transform our ignorance, suffering, and despair. Wherever we are, we can bow down to receive its energy of stability and fearlessness. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
I read this quote, and these words came today:
To touch the Earth is to feel grace in the form of a love story built to circle the ages. Creator and Mother Earth commingling to give us Gaia (Gaia: the breath needed to embody matter and cosmic energy) as Mana. (Mana: a generalized, supernatural force or power, which may be concentrated in objects or persons). Or, I feel, truth as sustenance in the mental make up of Matter.
1.the substance or substances of which any physical object consists or is composed:
the matter of which the earth is made.
2.physical or corporeal substance in general, whether solid, liquid, or gaseous, especially as distinguished from incorporeal substance, as spirit or mind, or from qualities, actions, and the like.
3.something that occupies space.
4. a particular kind of substance: coloring matter.
5. a situation, state, affair, or business: a trivial matter.
Dark Matter (a hypothetical form of matter invisible to electromagnetic radiation, postulated to account for gravitational forces observed in the universe) the paternal twin of natural light. God light that swings us around this holy playground in hope that we shall wake and stay again this time.
All of this we cannot exist with or without, so I bow to both in prayer from behind closed eyes and before feet hit the floor in the morning. I call to them throughout the day when I want a form of certain-ness (the only one that I know), and that is to connect continuously through sight, intent, and directed awe. Knowing that I am here in this body, everyday, creating my now.
I am glad I saw this post from my friend, Carole Roth, for breath, life, and love are the most sacred gifts ever given with such love, and truly makes Christmas everyday!
Love, Kellie J. Wright
