Identify Your Theology:
In yesterday's post, I asked you if you are a mystic or have had mystical experiences.
Today, let's move on to the next question, but before we do, head on over to your retreat room so you can relax and let go of any of the day’s stress.
What do you believe about our connection to the physical world? (trees, the ocean, birds, etc.) Is it possible to communicate with it or have a relationship of some kind?
"Nature forms such an important focus of their reverence, that whatever beliefs they hold about Deity, all Druids sense Nature as divine or sacred. Every part of nature is sensed as part of the great web of life, with no one creature or aspect of it having supremacy over any other. Unlike religions that are anthropocentric, believing humanity occupies a central role in the scheme of life, this conception is systemic and holistic, and sees humankind as just one part of the wider family of life." ~Druidry.org
"Mitakuye Oyasin (All Are Related) is phrase in the Lakota language. It reflects the world view of Interconnectedness held by the Lakota people. The phrase itself, and the underlying belief of interconnectedness with all creation, is a part of many Yankton Sioux prayers, and is found in use among Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people. The phrase translates as 'all my relatives,' 'we are all related,' or 'all my relations.' It is a prayer of oneness and harmony with all forms of life: other people, animals, birds, insects, trees and plants, and even rocks, rivers, mountains and valleys." ~Wikipedia.org
Now that you’ve read today’s question and a quote or two to get you thinking, head on back into the mini-retreat to close it and to see the journal questions and the blessing I’ve written for you.

What have you got planned for the weekend? I'm taking the weekends off but will see you back here on Monday.
