At long last, the final collage of 12 for my series titled, “For The Spiritual Journey”. Write represents our desire to put our spiritual beliefs into words. Closely connected to mediation & prayer, writing is the concrete act of expressing who we are in relation to the Divine. It gives our beliefs substance & provides an opportunity to share with others if we so choose.
Writing takes many forms including sacred texts such as the Bible & the Koran, spiritual poetry, a sermon waiting to be shared with a congregation, a journal of private thoughts, a Lorica written & recited for protection in the Christian Monastic tradition, a Book of Shadows for recording spells & rituals in the Wiccan tradition.. the possibilities are endless!
I write because it helps me articulate my connection to the Divine in all its many forms & provides a starting point for conversations with others who wish to explore spiritual matters. Writing can build community & aid in understanding if we write, & read with open minds & open hearts.
Here is the entire series of collages. My own spiritual practice does not include all of these but I include them in my series for you to consider. Namaste
