The first goal of these illuminations is to evoke and celebrate exaltation of the soul in all of the “seasons” through which it passes in the guise of our lives on earth en route, I believe, to higher, light-filled, and finally fulfilling dimensions of Reality. Related to this, a second goal is to support and inspire the soul as it becomes increasingly aware of its ultimate incompatibility with the fate of the body—indeed, with nature as a whole.
So these illuminations are meant to connect us to our deeply human experiences of joy and pain, of fear and hope, and of our “shadowings” and triumphs: our winters, springs, summers, and falls—this, from the perspective of that threshold which divides our this-worldly consciousness from the awareness of what I believe makes up our supra-worldly identities. This awareness of our supra-worldly Selves may often arise as we are nearing the boundary, or “break-in-plane,” between death and What-Comes-Next. These illuminations are meant for everyone who is aware of approaching that threshold. They’re meant for everyone who is caring for them, or has, or will—everyone who might be hungry for what I at least hope are words and images of wisdom about, and exaltation of, their earthly lives and their yearned for completion in a place of expansiveness and light beyond what nature can offer. I suspect that’s all of us. So these illuminations are meant for everyone.
