Precious sanctuary

Art: Mirjam vd Steeg
"I am thankful for this place called womb. It is my precious sanctuary, a holy place within the temple of my mother’s body"

You might call it the most holy place. Nobody but me and the Source of all life know exactly what is going on in here, it is our secret. I hope I don’t sound snobbish, but I actually feel I own the place a little, contrary to what I stated before. After all, I know every dark corner like nobody else. I am thankful because I share the rhythm of my mother’s life and I can feed on her body and all the while I am happily chatting away with my Creator, who oversees this process. 

It keeps amazing me how easily I get used to new situations in this womb process. There is no doubt in my mind that this whole thing is perfectly designed, I mean, the way things are flowing… wow! I don’t have to do any thinking, the development seems a rhythm, a dance, a sacred dance.

[About the artist: I met Mirjam at one of my book presentations, she started painting while reading Breath of Life and so gave color to the words...]
