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.

          But
           there ?
           are
           places


               where it is
               easier to
               perceive

               the Spirit


                     than others.


          Places
                where it might be
                easier to
                feel
                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,
Buddah,
or Cerridwen.
Then there's the Little People
and Manitou...



Dowsers are the same. . .               
          No two dowsers,

even if they
had the same
teacher,          

         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
does
everyone
see it
differently?

     I think it has
something
to do with
               the level of consciousness
of the individual,
          his/her set of expectations,
and     
     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...
