The Sacred Space

These days, we ask, implore and even demand from us to keep at least two meters apart …

This demand provokes frustration and anger in the hearts of many, but if we take a moment to look at it, we can recall the ancient Indian concept of the Sacred Space, which was an organic part of their culture and way of life …

According to Native American, the existence of a human being does not end in the limits of his body, but rather in the energetic space that surrounds him and is, in fact, the resonance of his presence …

Some call this energetic space Aura and some call it the encompassing light … In my experience, it doesn’t really matter what its name is, what matters is our need, as humans, to feel, see, be sensitive to and give it space …

If we learn to give this energetic cover a place, we will preserve a natural distance (which is not forced for external reasons) that respects the personal space of each of us, allowing for a sense of security and preventing penetration, discomfort and even aggression and profanity …

And here it is, amazingly and vice versa, this natural distance has the power to strengthen the unity and harmony between us … By being charged with the energies of two or more human beings, it may become a kind of glue that creats connection, closeness, balance and merging…

I chose a photo of a swan because the swan, although a noble, soft, and even magnificent animal, can become very aggressive towards penetrating its sacred space, its personal space, and not keeping a distance that does not threaten its existence …
