INNER CATHEDRAL

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.

  1. I love the idea of having an inner cathedral as an image to remember that God is in me and that I do not need to look outside of me to find God. Thanks Ann ;-)
