We live in a very full and busy world. The days seems to start earlier and earlier, yet end later and later. Sleep is no longer treated as a necessity, more of a luxury. We are raised and educated to become part of the economic cycle of production and consumption, and honestly... it all gets a bit much.
No easy thing to consider when we break it down, especially when we need to challenge our preconceived ideology and unconscious bias. For me I find that engaging with deity can be as close and personal as you, and they, choose it to be.
