The presentations at this site cover a long time period. Each one represents part of an on-going Pilgrimage, and the writer's ideas, practices, and experience have changed over time. This change is the quality of any living Journey. Please read with this in mind, allowing the inner Teacher to speak to you as you need at this particular time in your own living Journey. Thanks!

And God looked upon every thing that he had made, and, see, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

God is Artist.
Presence is replicating Formlessness in Form.
Movement from Formlessness to Form is of Love
to express in a shape.

God God-s; God is God-ing.
Form is Incarnation pointing to,
in degrees of clarity and intensity, the Sacred.

In a rose, fleeting as it is, is Love
untouched by time,
arising out of Eternity.

The Spirit is the Artist, and Reality, all of It
living through matter, body, mind, soul, and spirit,
is the Artwork.

And each of our lives and all creatures, together,
as well as the world we live in, is Invitation
to transformation into be-ing in the Be-ing of God.

So, the artistry of Incarnation summons us
to live more deeply and attentively to ordinary life
and ordinary persons, like you and me.

In the ordinariness is Heaven,
here and now,
always.
