Experience the Sacred


As I walked in the warm sun and waving grasses, I searched before me the expansive horizon, and in this moment of awareness experienced a sacred prairie chapel.

Certain vistas conjure an automated response to sacredness. For instance, most would agree a mountain or vast ocean is indeed a sacred scene to behold. Struck in the state of awe, we naturally gravitate to the creator--Source to speculate on our own sacredness.

All this contemplation led me to research the common definition of the word sacred. The fourth through seventh meanings listed on dictionary.com were especially thought provoking.

Sacred:

4. reverently dedicated to some person, purpose, or object
5. regarded with reverence
6. secured against violation, infringement
7. properly immune from violence, interference

In response to these four, I speculated about myself, others, and the sweet earth upon which we tread, then asked, what are we about? What do we co-create with every breath, thought, action? Moreover, what do we CHOOSE to co-create with every breath, thought, and action?
