A Collage of Spiritual Destiny

– Posted in: Aesthetics Collage & Montage Creativity Inspiration Surrealism Wood Engravings Wordless Wednesday


If we all saw the world as a temple and our lives as prayers, then perhaps all artificial and lifeless boundaries separating us, separating one from another, would fall. Distinctions among us would cease to be divisions. And our common spiritual destiny would then suddenly be much closer to us than formerly; not so much because we had taken a great step toward it, but rather because we had removed the barriers by which we held it off from joining us.

Your post took me to wonderland, awoke me. It was like a sip of fresh air, that as healed me from all doubts as challenged- I recall the Bible. God clearly talked of how to make our dreams into the reality. Unfortunately, how often the world (and I in the concrete) replace the sacred visions with personal musing? Now I clearly see myself as one who tried to hide under the shadow… Thank you for the help to restore my priorities.

Thank you for your visit and thoughtful comment, Tomas. It will indeed be a great day when all life — human and other living beings — realizes a common spiritual destiny; when all sacred visions and personal musings are integrated and unified into the infinite, multidimensional, constantly unfolding tapestry, which none can see but all can feel as it is being created in every instant ….
