“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Gen. 2:7).

The body remembers that God has breathed fire into it, the fire of life. The body knows what this feels like, the flame of life racing in its veins, radiating throughout every muscle and fiber.

It is a metaphorical memory perhaps, as of something that happened to humanity as a collective and remains imbedded in each cell’s sense of ultimate identity.

This cellular remembrance includes the awareness of separation which now afflicts all. Therefore the body also knows well what the absence of God’s life force within it feels like – that tomb-like walking death that most people interpret as normal existence.

The body’s longing to be reborn into true life is intense and pervasive – so much so that the conscious person cannot bear to feel it. Like a limb fallen asleep, but extending over the entire corpus and magnified beyond reckoning, this scintillating agony stretches endurance.

Within the Christian tradition is a striking event in which God's spirit of life returns to the flesh.

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them” (Acts 2:1-4).

Pentecost is celebrated today according to the Orthodox Christian calendar. It marks the beginning of the Christian Church as an institution, but also stands as a sign of healing to the whole of humanity as represented by those people upon whom the spirit came.

The flame of God’s life returned again to the body and manifested as breath, enabling those at the first Pentecost to speak in all languages so that anyone could understand and become a participant in their phenomenal experience of rebirth and renewal.


  1. I got stuck on scintillating agony. Commented about wainkng up ,and starpeople trying to help bring us on line. then ps ate my comment. Cursed out my next iunintregratwed feelings , didnt send that one;-) might as well have this one is almost as stupid . i going to ' get with the program ' maybe, i dont know. now i'm going to allow scintillating reality that noone cares about my rediculace experiences in front of thins mind sucking machine!
    Good day

  2. When I read this CD, I just saw all the flames emanating from them and feel as though it's like when we go into our hearts and begin that journey, how powerfully are hearts radiate from within, out.(or do not radiate out when we are not in) How 'Presence' or Holy Spirit radiates in a languge everyone and everything understands.
    Rebirth and renewal through the flame of God's
    Thank you so much for this.

    And, I just care to say that so often I have felt as though others were reading my mind and peering into my experiences when they share what they think are their ridiculous experiences, that no one cares about. I'm gtrateful that others show me myself through themselves. I'm grateful for the Star People too! :D

  3. Once, late at night, I was sitting out on the jetty very near the tongue of the ocean. I became united with All there is. I was not seperate from anything. I merged into that space. Then I remembered, " this is what it felt like to be in the breath of God." Such amazing peace.
