What Is Your Favourite Sacred Site?
There are places you go where time simply fades into nonexistence, and you are left with a deep feeling of Presence. Perhaps, if you are quiet enough, you just may be able to hear the primordial sound of the universe.
I remember, as a child, reading a book called 'The Nargun and the Stars' by an Australian author, Patricia Wrightson. The images and characters in the book haunted me long after I put it down.
I have had recalls of a past life as an aboriginal in the very area I live now, and actually had a 'bleed through' where the me of the past became conscious of me, in some way sensed my spying upon him. This happened at a rock outcrop not far from here. Perhaps the Den of the Nargun www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nargun was another sacred site for that me.
Every time I go there, I simply sit near the pool at the base of the small waterfall, and listen. The sacredness and sense of Gravity about the site is almost palpable. In summer the drops from the rock overhang resonate on a level deeper than the physical, seeming to break the silence with a single minded purpose.
Have you visited a sacred site that has touched you on some deep, personal level?
