LIFE is the magnificent, holistic expression of the Divine experienced through the whole of creation. Life is natural and unfolds itself naturally. But we have imprisoned Life in our concepts of duality, division and domination. And in the spiritual traditions of a more masculine approach we have often dismissed Life for the sake of enlightenment. Bringing back Life into the centre of our spiritual awareness and our natural being is the answer to Life’s calling to re-awaken to its real nature.

“We serve life not because it is broken but because it is Holy.”
Everything you see has its roots in the Unseen world.
The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same.
Every wondrous sight will vanish, every sweet word will fade.
But do not be disheartened, The Source they come from is eternal –
Growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy.
“For a woman it is this stream of life that connects her to the Absolute; it flows from the circle of the uncreated eternal into this world and with this world again back to God. Its water is pure and clear because it contains this stainless substance that can never be polluted.“
—Angela Fischer, closing chapter, frauen meditieren anders
“… the sacred principles of life have never been written down: they belong to the heartbeat, to the rhythm of the breath and the flow of blood. They are alive like the rain and the rivers, the waxing and waning of the moon. If we learn to listen we will discover that life, the Great Mother, is speaking to us, telling us what we need to know.“
“But life holds mystery for us yet. In a hundred places
we can still sense the source: a play of pure powers
that – when you feel it – brings you to your knees.”
—Rainer Maria Rilke
“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.
It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.”
“Magic is for those who say an unconditioned ‘Yes’ to life…“
“Humankind did not weave the web of life. We are but one strand within it. Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves.”
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
“The realization that every act, every word, every thought of ours not only influences our environment but for some mysterious reason forms an integral and important part of the Universe, fits into it as if by necessity so to say, in the very moment we do, or say, or think it – is an overwhelming and even shattering experience. The tremendous responsibility of it is terrifying. If all of us only knew that the smallest act of ours, or a tiny thought, has such far-reaching effects as to set in motion forces which perhaps could shatter a galaxy…If we know it deeply and absolutely, if this realization becomes engraved permanently on our hearts, on our minds, how careful we would act and speak and think. How precious life would become in its integral oneness.”
