The second chapter
of "Mystery: Dancing in the Dark
" is the Hymn of the Pearl
. Listen to this ancient poem/song from the first century AD, as it tells the story of the soul, or of us. Leaving home, our source and origin, on a mission to retrieve the mysterious Pearl, from the "snorting serpent," the soul becomes forgetful, and takes on the characteristics and habits of its surroundings. What has the soul forgotten, and how will it remember?
Learning to recognize the Mystery as contained in our dreams, hunches, symptoms and addictions, we may come to see them as messages, from our "home", our origins, which aim to help us to remember who we really are, and why we are here.
You may also find it helpful to use the Guided Meditation
as a way to quiet your mind and to develop the ability to observe your active inner world.Listen
