That which We Seek by Karina Blackheart

No matter what I write or teach, no matter what I believe or practice, it comes down to this: The embodiment of ecstatic experience.  The word ecstasy has embedded in it, a sense of fearlessness, a wild innocence unencumbered by social acceptability. We think of ecstasy as taking place in the bedroom or in the temple–places set aside from the daily round.  But, if we turn the lens a little, we’ll find slivers of the ecstatic–call it the Numinous, Mystery, Divine–embedded in the small and magnificent tasks we perform daily.
