Everyone longs for some kind of experience that reveals the existence of something grander running through the repetitive patterns that so often govern our lives. Something that changes and gives clarifying significance to everything, gives us palpable meaning and direction. Yet, we so often pull back from the ways we perceive these: intuition, conscience and sense of the divine. Maybe it’s a help to retreat from the intimidating words, look for the actuality in a simpler way, like a child does in a discerning hunch, a caring consideration, a sensuous feel for the sublime. It’s not as if the doors to these enchantments aren’t constantly opening throughout each and every day of our lives.
