  • In the Vortex, with a capital V. Once you have experienced the seamless flow you can never leave. It is all that you desire, to experience moment to moment the boundless buoyancy of the soul. To ride along the spirit waters. To be carried up through the heavens where you reach easily to grab a handful of dazzling stars and pull them to your breast. They nestle in. Your heart reaches to the world, shining, casting moon beams. From many comes one. All one.
