“… All things are made holy in their union with the Sacred …” ~ Jonathan Ellerby
Jonathan Ellerby’s fascinating and profound book, Return to the Sacred: Ancient Pathways to Spiritual Awakening, is a guide to “… help you understand the importance of spiritual practice and the great diversity of paths that are available to you …”
Here’s a sampling:
“… All things are made holy in their union with the Sacred, and all things are made endurable in the Light of Timeless Awareness … The immeasurable essence of our Sacred Source lives within everyone and connects us to our eternal origin and the fabric of being …
… This is a knowing that lives within each of us. It isn’t so much a discovery as it is a remembering …”
And Jonathan exquisitely evokes that “remembering” through Ganga White’s words of wisdom :
What if our religion was each other
If our practice was our life
If prayer, our words
What if the temple was the Earth
If forests were our church
If holy water – the rivers, lakes, and ocean
What if meditation was our relationships
If the teacher was our life
If wisdom was self-knowledge
If love was the center of our being.
~ Ganga White
In the same vein, Jonathan also reminds us that : “Everything is made small in the vastness of consciousness, God’s Eternity.”
