The Orphic Egg
The egg was an important symbol in early mythologies. It was believed that the Universe evolved from a great egg, each half corresponding to heaven and earth. I fancy that – reflecting the greater Universe from which we evolve – we each have a store of creativity and productivity, our personal “cosmic eggs.”
CRACKING COSMIC EGGS
careless spill of our treasured store,
our divine inheritance of cosmic eggs,
cracking them, betraying our truth,
or feeding them to the great poverty
of media trickery, more refuse than
mortal mind or heart can ever hope
to process in such rot ripe days of
political theatre and celebrity gossip

Thank you for sharing the beauty and inspiration:
The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.
