Recognize the Sacred

“To the poet, to the philosopher, to the saint, all things are friendly and sacred, all events profitable, all days holy, all [people] divine.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
To honor the sacred is to be in communion with life. The easiest place to begin is in nature. We can celebrate the stillness of a tree and the brief, iridescent existence of the dragonfly with the same mindfulness. Slow down and simplify. In the gap of pure potential we can bask in the radiance of the Divine.
Once you have strengthened your ability to recognize sacredness, practice with objects that you find beautiful. It’s likely that an artisan or craftsman created from a space of deep connection, imbuing it with energy which is now awakening joy within you. Many people respond to the spirit within animals or babies because the lack of ego makes it easier to see love shining through.
With humans, a little more intention is required. We can learn to see past the role that is being played by the ego to the spirit within. Sometimes this can be challenging because of layers of dysfunction or conditioning. This is when your ability to see clearly is needed the most. As you practice honoring everything in your experience as sacred, the sacred will awaken within you.
