Sacred Living

“Every religion gives its prescription for bringing sacred into daily life. The Native Americans have as one of their most noble ideals that we learn to walk on the Earth in a sacred manner. Yet vast stretches of “civilized” terrain are becoming wasteland. The ancients taught the Earth was alive- a pulsating, evolving Being. To them, nature and the elements were ensouled. All matter and substance were permeated with the mystery of divine immanence. To the ancients, it was obvious that divinity was present in the human soul as well as in the elements of nature. From these certainties streamed the essential sanctity of all life.” ~Emory J. Michael, The Alchemy of Sacred Living
