A Challenging Reality
I heard the words and could not un-hear them.
Gary Zukav spoke them to Oprah.
It was a quote from a woman named Hildegard von Bingen.
“a feather on the breath of God.”
It shook me. It changed me.
For decades, since I became spiritually conscious and aware, I have had this feeling ….
Impossible to describe or understand. I felt I had to understand it in order to live it.
Now, 7 words come. a feather on the breath of God. Yes.
And I still don’t understand it but I know that is the feeling I have pursued, hunted in the night, longed for, attempted to throw myself into with such abandon that death didn’t matter, nor pain, nor light, nor dark, nor any other sensation or experience that might say it mattered more than being ….
a feather on the breath of God.
and I still don’t understand it ….
and I know it is all that matters to me, as a spiritually conscious being, it is all that matters, all that ever mattered.
