Chariot Of Fire

I'm told the human aura has a circumference of 26 feet. That's big. I paced it out and it's over halfway down the garden path. Unless you're living in a cavern in the Peak District your aura will constantly be overlapping other people's. Consider the implications. Imagine the radiant soup in a busy shopping street...

The Hebrew word for it is Merkabah which is the word used in tradition for the celestial chariot in which Elijah went back to heaven. I've been singing "Jerusalem" all my life and now I think I'm finally getting a handle on what Blake was talking about. "Bring me my chariot of fire" means something like "let me realise my full potential"- only "chariot of fire" sounds better.

We think our consciousness is trapped in our physical bodies but really we're travelling around in an invisible vehicle that would blaze out like the sun if we let it.

Sunflower




Ah, Sun-flower, weary of time
Who countest the steps of the Sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow
Arise from their graves and aspire
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go

William Blake
