important reminders

We never fell.

We are not separate.

Any apparent separation from the Divine and the Eternal is by our choice. We chose to be incarnated into Time and Matter, in order to learn things we could not otherwise learn; in order to play in the Garden. Our connection is still there; neglected, attenuated, but there. Most of us have just forgotten it.

There was no "original sin". Our mistakes are are own; no more or less sad or ludicrous or heinous for that. But our triumphs are ours, too; we should own them with pride. The Powers may help us, but they can only place the tools and resources in our hands. We are the ones who must use them.

We are part of Nature. All our works are part of Nature. Chernobyl and Chartres Cathedral, Rembrandt's "Night Watch" and the Nuremburg Rallies.

The planet doesn't need saving. We need saving. Help is there, but we need to reach out for it.

We are the ones who choose. Let us always choose beauty and truth - "forgiveness over vendetta, brilliance over mediocrity, the clean difficult way over the dubious easy option".

I'd have to say the Invisibles is my favorite graphic novel series. If you let it, it really can change who you are.

I've been working for years to come up with an original sin, and I haven't managed yet!
