Daily Meditation: Thin time -- All Saints Day -- EXPERIENCING THE HOLY

During a recent workshop with Joanna Macy at Ghost Ranch, she led us into what she calls "deep time" work. It made me aware of how much I live in small time, my time, our times, and unaware of time altogether.

On these "thin days," as the ancient Celts called them, All Saints Day and All Souls Day, we are invited to be aware of deep time in a very convincing way—that is, past, present, and future time all in one time. On these pivotal days we are reminded that our ancestors are still in us and work with us and through us. I personally think this is the Christian meaning of reincarnation, which we called "the communion of saints." We declared our solid belief in the communion of saints in the Apostle's Creed but few of us have realized its very practical and healing implications.
