I feel the heartbeat of the World, and I know she is with me.I hear the songs of the wind, and my hear soars through the heavens.I see the vibrance in the colors of life and the fire that is my soul comes alive.I smell the sweet fragrance of life, abundance and my mind finds peace.I taste the fruits of the World and my worries are cleansed, for I will never hunger.And in all that is the God and Goddess, a true harmony with them is shared with the love they have given us.In this we can find peace and serenity
All things pass between the Four Quarters of the Earth. And any stray accident or obligation, fancy or dream can account for a person’s first visit to the Land we call Four Quarters. What will draw you back though, is always a quest for Spirit. Something you saw here, someone who touched you here, showed you a way of being alive that is larger, fuller, truer… so you came back for more.
There is a relationship, then, between you and what you have found on this Land. Where there are relationships, there are responsibilities.
I tripped upon Four Quarters quite accidentally, by way of advertisement you might say. And reading the Wheel of the Year Calendar provided me with mind’s-eye images of what I might expect. A Hippie Haven in southern Pennsylvania? An Interfaith Sanctuary? A farm? A camp? A commune? I did not know, but I was very curious and whatever Four Quarters turned out to be, I believed was worth exploring. And like anything else, I knew I would have to experience Four Quarters to find its truth.
