Mysterium Tremens

Postby holley on Sun Dec 06, 2009 11:02 pm

Frequently camp at HO'Okena Beach and stride to Place of Refuge/Two Step and back (@9mi).
The physical exertion and surrounding beauty open transcendent realms, similar to the effects of bodywork.
On a recent visit to New York City, vaulted into similar space on a visit to St. John The Divine, the world's largest cathedral. These disparate encounters with sacred space prompt me to ask; where and how do you enter into the Myterium Tremens?

I've heard that it happens in certain special places in Arizona. Can't remember what that place is called though. For me personally, it is when I am in a forest - pretty much any forest.

I think that I am not fascinated and afraid in too many instances... it's usually one or the other (I kind of categorized Mysterium Tremens in that line). But, I think from this thread what you are suggesting is looking deeper into a fascinating mystery and finding an aware and calm point all rolled up into one. I tried to find a definition of these words, but I couldn't, so I am not so sure. :oops:

For what I think you are asking: I lay on a small outcropping of stone, somewhere in the desert, below a cliff, but above the ground. While I lay there, looking above at the eagles soaring effortlessly into the sun, sending out a vocalization to the other in the air pocket above, I also hear the water moving past me, down-aways and to the right. Here, I am at peace. Here I appreciate on a higher plane the world around me. Big Bend is where I am at home.
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells ...

Autopsies evoke fear and trembling within me, reminds me of our mortality and the wonder of life. GRAPHIC autopsy
