I am happy to have come through the birth agonies and joy of recreating Waking Life Studio on a brand new platform. It was touch and go there for a while but the vehicle is back on track, a new track by the grace ofGod-dess!
I was reading this morning in John O'Donohue's book, Anam Cara, where he talks about the human body as being our home on earth. He described our body as being the 'Shepherd of clay', and that as humans, our body of clay has the unique privilege of ascending and expressing itself in the world of light. And he goes on to describe that as that uniqueness, we represent an unknown world that begs us to bring it to voice. The artistic tension between our clay and our mind is only in conversation through our imagination.
The imagination is in love with the symbol because it sees that the symbol is the most reverent form to express our divinity. The symbol resides at the threshold of darkness and light as an invitation to converse; to perfectly and eloquently mirror the inner world.
And so too our dreams abound with symbol, not to deceive us or confuse us but to draw us closer to that threshold of darkness and light where our imagination can illuminate our deepest, most unique: the great mystery of our innermost self.
