Imagine yourself standing on a beach
near the waterline
as you gaze out over the ocean.
The wet sand is so solid
that your feet leave only the faintest of imprints…
You step forward
to stand just within reach of the leading edge of the waves.
As each wave curls around your ankles
and then rushes out again
notice that it sucks the sand out from under your feet,
You are forced to take a new stance, again and again.
This is something like the relationship
between the ego
and the larger divine perspective
that both attracts and undermines.
Can we be “undermined” sufficiently to allow a true transcending?
“Oh but how we resist”

Uniting Sex, Self and Spirit by Genia Pauli Haddon
