Coming from a week off, we are now ready to jump back in the saddle and begin working again. Time to reflect a little on our 'little - big' COSMIC HOUSE.
As Coomaraswamy, the Indian philosopher wrote in 1943,
" the house and world are two equivlent sums....and the family living in it is the image of the countless crowd of creatures dwelling in the shelter of the cosmic house, of which the ceiling or roof is heaven and the the sun...."
And as we continue to build up the Green Man portal I returned to Gibran's THE PROPHET,
"Your house is your larger body.
It grows in the sun and sleeps in the stillness of the night; and it is not dreamless. Does not your house dream? and dreaming, leave the city for grove or hilltop?
Would that I could gather your houses into my hand and like a sower scatter them in forest and meadow.
Would the valleys were your streets, and the green paths your alley, that you might seek one another through vineyards, and come with the fragrance of the earth in your garments."
