Spiritual Reflection – Connected


Some people describe a powerful feeling of connectedness – with the natural world, with the universe, with other people.

I recently launched a Facebook discussion group, and we are currently exploring this aspect of spiritual experience. If you are interested you can visit the group here.

This poem was inspired by this kind of feeling of connection:


The wild birds inhabit these hills

                and I, a walker,

glancing down the valley

                dazzled by gleaming lights

flung across the fields like necklaces


I feel connected with the wind

                the grass under my feet

     God’s sky above my head.


Have you ever had an experience like this?
