Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
The three traditional/classical ways
of accessing transcendence--
The Transcendent, Transcendent Reality--
are through our regular/recurring
association with art, music and nature,
in the company of emptiness, stillness and silence,
throughout the time left for living.
I combine art and nature with the images
I have collected over the years
and deposited in my Flickr account online.
The second link I am posting below is for that site--
if you go there and find the slideshow icon
(a small monitor)
the images will display for about 5 seconds,
then move on to the next.
The first link below
will take you to YouTube's offering
of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons."
Open that in one tab
and open a second tab
for the Flickr link,
click the slideshow icon,
and you have,
art, music and nature.
Supply your own emptiness, stillness and silence
(with the music assisting the silence
and not interfering with it),
and spend as much time as you can allot
to the experience,
as often as you can work it into your live,
and I will have done all I can do
to restore your relationship with transcendence
and with balance and harmony,
spirit, vitality and life.
I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing.
I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
