Celebrating creativity at the heart of spiritual practice, the new volume of CoSM Journal of Visionary Culture shares reflections of artists, leaders and futurists from their experiences of Divinity.
What is your experience of Divinity?
“The soul’s eye view is what all of sacred art and literature share, a portal into Divinity.”
– Alex and Allyson Grey
“The Jeweled Net of Indra, the vision of reality that arose with Hua Yen Buddhism, reveals a world where each being, each gem at each node of the net, is illuminated by all others and reflected in them. As part of this world, you contain the whole of it.”
– Joanna Macy
“The great gift for humanity is that this Creative Universal Intelligence, this Consciousness Force, this Spirit-in-Action is indwelling in each of us as us. It is the Impulse of Evolution, the animating power that activates in each of us our own heart’s desire to be more, do more, love more, give more, create more, just like the universe itself is always doing.”
– Barbara Marx Hubbard
“It is Being Itself, the very Breath of Life that fills our lungs, so close to us, so full of mystery.”
Rabbi Jonathan Kligler
Three Improbable Events
“My experience of Divinity is life itself.Life in all the vitality, diversity, and renewal.”
“Speaking is the primary metaphor: Spoken words convey meanings, connections, structures, images, fears, hopes, and so much else. But words would be inert and ineffective without the flow of the out breath of which they are spoken.”
– Rupert Sheldrake
“Shakti, an Energetic Consciousness or Conscious Light that can zap, radiate, illuminate and re-wire us through a broad range of “openings,” be these erotic, traumatic, psychedelic, aesthetic or contemplative.”
“Religion is focused upon one’s beliefs about Divinity. Spirituality is focused upon one’s experience of Divinity.”
– Michael A. Singer
“The experience of nature and the experience of the eternal inner worlds is the Divinity of Divinity, both outside and inside.”
– Luis Eduardo Luna
Mujeres del Viento
“The Vast Radiance of The Celestial Light
Shining at Night, through the Stars and the Moon
In The Heavens above us.”
– Jeffrey Bronfman
“It doesn’t require faith in the invisible, it really just requires appreciation, reverence, joy and love for what is all around us.”
