Hallowed Be Thy Aim

Odilon Redon - Apollo's Chariot

To "hallow" means to honor as holy or to make holy, to consecrate.

To "meditate" is to simply, tenderly hallow awareness with awareness.

Plenum and void occupy the same space; indeed, they are the twin masks of space, and space unmasked is consciousness.

When we "pray," it is like the sun's reflection engaging in dialogue with the sun.

True prayer and meditation are intimate expressions celebrating the underlying unity of human and divine.

-- Richard Power

Power's eighth book,  Humanifesto: A Guide to Primal Reality in an Era of Global Peril , is available now in soft cover and Kindle versions, from Amazon and elsewhere.
