Dear Lynne, thank you for sharing, such a magical journey you describe! I can relate to your connection to other sentient beings, plants, animals, the land itself. I am just wondering… my feeling has always been that sacredness is in reality everywhere, but that some spaces are imbued with superficiality which covers sacredness like clouds would cover the sky. The sky is still there, but the superficial focus of attention is so dense in some places, often in cities, that sacredness gets “zoned out” so to speak. How does that sound to you?
