A Bibliomantic Tale IX…

*

*

Our encounter with Dyffryn Ardudwy on the previous day had whetted our prehistoric appetite.

The challenge now was to find a suitable site on our journey back en-route to Llandudno.

There was no shortage of possible contenders although many of them involved steep climbs and the hot June weather was becoming a reckoning factor.

The sensible thing would have been to keep driving.

The flow of air at high speed was proving an effective enough coolant.

But legend reached us of a disturbed and reconstructed cairn not far from Betws-y-Coed.

No 8 (Light)

God is nearer to us than our own soul and God is the means whereby our Substance and our Sensuality are kept together so as never to be apart.’

– Julian of Norwich

No 9 (Dark)

‘I saw that God never began to love us… We have always been in God’s foreknowledge, known and loved from without beginning… We were made for love.

– Julian of Norwich

“That’s the reverse of the reading we got at the summit of the Great Orme.”

“I thought I recognised it.”

“The same story holds good both on a height and in a tomb.”

*

*

“That’s probably a fitting enough conclusion to the readings.”

“Until the next time.”

“You’ll need a different book.”

“Undoubtedly, but I’ll leave it to them to furnish me with one.”

*

‘Be seeing you.’

With thanks to Steve Tanham and Barbara Walsh, event organisers, and the Companions of the Silent Eye who joined us for the event and contributed their own readings.

Readings taken from ‘Christian Mystics’ by Matthew Fox.
