Mysticism on the Move

perhaps mysticism is the transitory phase towards

our metamorphosis into swirling butterflies {that

have weight.} But this transitory phase does not obey

any metamorphic rule. Au contraire, it has its own rules:

{body – carbon dioxide → spirituality + truth + water.}

Spirituality, & how to keep spiritual is of concern here.

—A controlling growth into a Bildungsroman aided

by the flowing water. The butterflies coil up into the sky,

still swirling. ‘Swirling’ is the key to renew decayed bodies

thru evading the terrestrial ground. The butterflies’ scents

move thru the ether and {once again} crash on the cracked walls.

Now, I can say this [meta]morphosis has to begin from scratch.

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.
