A statement from one of my favorite authors,  Thomas Moore: ” The spiritual life is not abstract.  It thrives on ritual, art, good words, and symbolic acts.  The concrete actions bring the transition home physically, emotionally, and intellectually.  In this way, you know you have gone through a change, and you can adjust accordingly.”  This is where the soul rises, metaphorically, to engage the Spiritual and brings the mind back ” above the horizon.”  Love one another with kindness and tolerance.
