Sacred Places

                                               Sacred Places
On our beautiful planet Earth we often think that sacred places are in a building. True one can create a mindset in which to receive light anywhere and sometimes the glitter of gold or decorated altar will have an effect. There are several parks and places in the world known as sacred places or placid places. In my travels have been to a few of these. The natural and majestic beauty of mountains or coral reefs , the waterfalls are just a few characteristics of a sacred place. In Alberta, Canada it was the majestic Canadian Rockies, in Hawaii it was the snow capped peak of Mauna Kea. They exist in every continent and they seem to bring one close to God.

Often people will save up their life savings for a trip to Disney or to see a Temple in China or India. It may be an alternate to seek out a world Heritage location and go there. Even beyond the scenic views,
it is my belief there are gradient openings throughout the planet that one can feel spiritual presence. These are not man made cathedrals , perhaps a ice covered cavern with glistening walls or beneath a thundering waterfall. So many times we get caught up in life and stress can overcome someone. The best place to release that tension is a sacred place - a placid place.

When Moses talked to God , he went to the top of Mount Sinai not to a temple or building. Jesus went to the beautiful garden of Gethsemane. These were places that were natural in essence not built by man.

Take the time, plan a trip to a sacred place.
