Sample text

Most of our bodily disciplines are for ego needs and requirements of selfesteem. This is a far cry from letting what the poet Mary Oliver (1992:110) calls “the soft animal of your body love what it loves,” or living a fully embodied life. As a temple of the soul, the body is hurt, even crushed, by a spirit of perfectionism. Wholehearted acceptance of the body’s concrete particular existence seems to be essential not only for living well and fully but for healing. We cannot individuate without it.

Despite the explicit sexual imagery in Hadewijch’s poem, a full reading of her visions leaves little doubt that the union of which she speaks has multiple layers of meaning and ultimately refers to the soul’s intimate relationship with God under the aegis of Minne, the feminine principle. God’s abyss may be masculine and unfathomable, but when “Love engulfs you in her abyss” then you experience the “glue,” the “bond,” the link between the embodied soul and the “unfathomable” (spiritual) Godhead.

Others claim they don’t mean a thing. But there are at least two things they mean that seem incontrovertible…One of them is that we are in constant touch with a world that is as real to us while we are in it, and has as much to do with who we are, and whose ultimate origin and destiny are unknown and fascinating, as the world of waking reality. The other one is that our lives are a great deal richer, deeper, more intricately interrelated, more mysterious, and less limited by time and space than we commonly suppose… People who tend to write off the validity of religious experience in general and the experience of God in particular on the grounds that in the Real World they can find no evidence for such things should take note.
