Of Grinding Stones and the Veil

You are welcome here.  This is the first post.

Once, I was down by a river, sitting on a massive flat rock where historic grinding holes still pocked the surface.  Holes that were centuries old, around which first nations women gathered to do the pounding work of making meal. I was there with friends, the family of the sort you pick.  In our sun warmed silence, one of them opened up and shared the following story…

She had been meditating on a grinding rock near her home up north, when suddenly the Veil thinned, and she found herself among the ancient women who were busily making acorn meal in that same place, but centuries ago.

There they were, together.

After a moment, the women began to notice my friend.

Hello!  You are Spirits!” my friend said to them brightly.

They looked at her.

No,” they replied matter-of-fact, “YOU are the Spirit.

 

Think about that.

 

Just when I think I am ‘sure’ about something, along comes a bigger framework to orient around. (A sense of humor helps!)

And so, this blog.

These posts are personal reports from a life lived near the Veil… And of the adventures and wild perspective reorienting that comes from that.  (Yeeeehaaaaa!!)

Now in midlife, I see this perspective has worth outside my own tiny world. I see it can be shared in a way that is useful.

May something in this blog spark the part of you that remembers a deeper reality of meaningfulness, purpose, connectedness, and beauty. May it make a little elbow room to help you see when Spirit shows up in your world. Because it’s happening, for everyone. After all, we are spirits having a human experience (not the other way around, and no matter what moment in Time we are…).   Remember?

Posts will be sporadic, as inspired.

Thank you for visiting.

  3. What a beautiful voice you have. A talent for conveying hints of the depth that lies behind the words. And beneath the Veil. Congratulations on a valued and valuable blog. Cousin Roxane
