The Experience of Sacred Space makes possible the “founding of the world”:
where the sacred Manifests itself in space,the real unveils itself,
and the world comes into existence
… Mircea Eliade …
What is Sacred Space?
Read and re-read the quote above. Take it into your space of meditation. Analyze, dissect and observe it from all angles, perspectives and meaning. Try to feel the weight and breath of its meaning and allow the words to gently wash over you. Digest it and then simply sit with the feeling of satiety its inner essence provides. And, once you have done these things, redo them, one by one. Therein you will find the wholeness and gnosis of meaning that is contained within the sacred space you have so intensely and with such devotion created around those words.
