Tip o' the Week # 109 - The Nature of Sacred Space

The Nature of Sacred Space

Dear [firstname]

This is a tone poem I did for Laurence McLeod’s Sacred Sites website. I wrote over a decade ago and it feels appropriate today.



All the Earth is Sacred,
With Every Step We Take

          so the chant goes,?
          and, of course, it is true.

           there ?

               where it is
               easier to

               the Spirit

                     than others.

                where it might be
                easier to
                at one

                     with the One.

It's the Nature of Sacred Space.

                  It might be easier
                  to feel at one with the One
                  in Avebury Stone Ring

than, say, in Hell's Kitchen;

                  or in Mesa Verde
 than in Times Square.

                  So, there are places on this Earth

                        Where Spirit is concentrated;

                          Where it's "more sacred."

The weird thing about this concentration
is that everyone who goes there sees Spirit differently.

Some encounter Spirit
and see Jesus
Others see Mohammed,
or Cerridwen.
Then there's the Little People
and Manitou...

Dowsers are the same. . .               
          No two dowsers,

even if they
had the same

         find the same thing     
                    when dowsing in sacred space.

Some find energy leys and domes of water,
others find Curry and Hartmann Grids,
then there's Michael and Mary Lines,
and Aquastats and Track lines,
not to mention "energy lines"
and Maltese Crosses.
The list goes on and on.

So, why
see it

     I think it has
to do with
               the level of consciousness
of the individual,
          his/her set of expectations,
     What s/he's ready to "see."   

Hmm. . . Who decides that last one - what we're ready to see?

Maybe it is Spirit.
Not some dumb energy with no consciousness.
But the Energy of Spirit with total eternal consciousness.

Maybe it is the Spirit of the Place
who decides what we see...
