Altars

I’m working on something fairly deep and it’s not going to get finished tonight. Until then, let me point you toward author and teacher Thorn Coyle’s new blog post on altars. It’s quite good – go read it for yourself.

The important point is that altars aren’t decorations. They’re representations of what you hold sacred, and as such they should be tended.

This is my home altar.

A framed copy of the picture below hangs on my office wall. It is invaluable for keeping me connected to my core values and keeping me grounded during stressful times.

What does your altar look like?

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
