When traveling any distance,
Locate and marvel at huge
Churches of any denomination.
Recently visited Mother Ship,
Westminster Abbey, inspiring
Yet smaller than imagined.
Fascinations, always projections
Of inner replicas, echo and
Recognize reflections of icons.
Crucifixes: sacrifice of self before others
Altars: sacred foundation of Self
Vaulted ceilings: possibilities for higher aspirations and intentions
Buttresses: DNA, matriarchal strength and ecer-present support
Side chapels: specific traits meriting attention and expansion
Statues: archetypal aspects offering context and pan-historical understanding
Relics: family energy and influences; multi-generational patterns
Graves: shadow aspects buried and needing resurfacing
Inner cathedral reflects full
Potential; inspires uplifting
Optimism; offers separation
And integration. Inner cathedral
Expresses expansion toward
Fruition, wholeness, individuation.
Inner cathedral's substantive
Footprint is tangible evidence
Of divine reality that God is
Within and is always available.
