Real connexion stems from what we call the Heart. There is a circulation to the Heart – between the Heart and other Hearts – human and otherwise. This is the main thrust of my work. But there is a circulation within the body, not as simple as blood or ch’i, but something a lot deeper and from our ancestry – as deep as the beginnings of time. Real connexion is out of time and passes through bones and sinews from our ancient impressions through something with the same kind of significance as genes. The inter-connexions between ourselves and other humans and all living things are so complex that there is no intellectual sense to be made of it. If my writings echo in you it is because you echo in them. The soul of belonging is the interplay with all whom you meet and is quite outside of ego. To hear the truth resound within your own destiny is a great responsibility. It bounces forwards in a natural way and you must devote yourself to keeping up with it. To be alive is to become your destiny and to burn everyone you come across with a stronger and stronger light. So from your land of mist and my land of mystery we have a meeting and a blessing.
