Use The Heartwood Path's Three Graces: Spirit, Nature, And Sex
This powerful combination will take you to that special liminal “place” where feeling and imagination are, at once, ordinary and extraordinary. The Heartwood Path’s Three Graces (Theos/Spirit, Ecos/Nature and Eros/Sex) will transport you on a rite of passage that will make you more susceptible to positive influences and beneficial changes.
The “tickets” for this journey to the liminal world that is not quite earthly and not quite heavenly are sensation, passion, and imagination. The use of these “tickets” in loving ways leads to an erotic morality that affects deeply all that is—from the heart within to the wood without. Lovingly using sensation, passion, and imagination encourages a slower pace—the use of time that allows for the development of wisdom. Use a slower pace to be wise and the rat race to be otherwise. A slower pace is helpful because it gives you time to listen.
Science amasses knowledge faster than society collects wisdom. The trouble with this inequity arises when science, using its rapid acquisition of knowledge, runs amok faster than society can find the wisdom to control it. So give the development of wisdom some time. Since knowledge speaks and wisdom listens, take time to hear the messages of the wise and thereby prevent yourself from speaking your knowledge while revealing your lack of wisdom. Speak, not only with your words (talk is cheap, until lawyers get involved); speak also with your actions.
As we all know, if you do speak, do not use double negatives. They are a complete no-no. And never, never, never repeat yourself.
Of the three tickets to the liminal world, now is the best time to discuss sensation. One of the best ways to develop your ability to sense the real world is to bring mindfulness into your daily activities. The following activity, inspired by a book written by Jan Chozen Bays, MD, (2011) will help you sing with the Three Graces of Spirit, Nature, and Sex.
