“That, I think, is the power of ceremony. It marries the mundane to the sacred. The water turns to wine; the coffee to a prayer.”
― Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
The Wizard’s Reflection
The path of the sacred is the path of conscious choice. Such choice often comes to us slowly, as we emerge from the sleeping of our time-trance until one day we awaken our will and our world is forever re-arranged. The life of choice is always awaiting us; we simply have to choose it. And all choice is a sacrifice.
Whatever we spend our life doing, whatever we give our attention to, we are making a sacrifice of our life. This is the true human sacrifice, made upon the altar of our choice. It is a blood offering, not of spilled & wasted blood, but of the blood and breath that flow through us and express our life and the choices we choose with it. To awaken to this ceremony of offering is to shrug off the meaninglessness of the cultural narrations which raised us.
