In my blog
I am working on a series I call “In A Sacred Manner.” I am making a comparison between Eliria, the home planet of extra-terrestrial beings in Never Again
, and Earth. On Eliria there is neither male nor female, no pain, aging, or death, no need to kill to eat, no violence. They are immortal beings of unconditional love who live in total harmony with their planet.
On Earth we must deal with the challenges of the need to kill to eat (yes, vegetables are also lives we take), sex, pain, aging, and death. These challenges can, and do, take us down into abysses of fear, hatred, despair, violence. But these same challenges can be transcendent if we meet them in a sacred manner. I am exploring how we might do that. I have already posted one piece on killing to eat, two on sexual love, and one on living with pain in a sacred manner. The next ones I’m planning will be about aging and death.
Of course, I am no great authority on these matters, just speaking from my own experience and hoping to start a conversation. So if you are following my blog, please respond and share your ideas.
