Oct. 29-31. On Heaven, with Hildegard, Bingen, water, gardens, and cosmographies

We are not going to begin our writing with the regular prompter-of-the-week here, this week.

However, all and any of you wish to publish a FREE-FORM, optional blogpost related to Hildegard, to Bingen, to cosmic humanity, to ruins, monasteries, or gardens, or to any other question about, in, on, or at sacred spaces, you can do so here.

Stay warm and dry tonight, watch out for with brooms, and be safe.  Happy Halloween.

  1. In class, we talked about the difference between “in heaven” and “on heaven.” “In heaven” implies the focus on the concept of heaven as a place, referring a more traditional understanding of heaven. In comparison, “on heaven” refers to the state of mind as a “transitory personal experience.” In “Cosmic Humanity” from the Book of Divine Works, the divinity embraces the human figure — on the human — creating an experience about Heaven and the cosmic ideologies.

    It is also important to recognize the circle around human figure divided into four sections, as seen in other readings and discussion previously. There is similar ideas represented visually through the plate in the Yoruba religion, and at the Islamic garden by Alhambra. Similar geometric patterns are present in such different religions, yet presenting different meanings and slightly varying understandings of superior divinity.
