Michael Meade begins with a poem that suggests that the big dream of the world may be increasingly obscured by the nightmare of endless war and the growing number of conflicts throughout the world. In a heartfelt response to many who write in about being discouraged about life, he argues that freedom is found in the active, imaginative mind and in the hidden poetic union of the soul. Weaving ideas about the roots of human creativity and the articulation of beauty and meaning in the world, the path leads to ideas of the deep self as being the center of life and source of the ongoing dream of the world. In the midst of annihilating storms and threatening culture wars, the individual self and soul become the necessary place to turn to and the essential place to stand when the future of the world is at risk.

In finding deeper connections to the already existing knowledge and medicine of the deep self, we get increasing vital energy which we need to stand up in the troubling currents of the modern world, as well as an ongoing revelation of the value that we can and must bring to the world, or else by omission, we contribute to the nightmare already growing in the world.

In the poetics of the soul, the purpose of pain is to bring us closer to giving birth to something eternal, and the word God is simply a reference to the Divine. As William Blake said, ‘Each day has a moment of eternity waiting for you, if only we are awake when the moment comes.’ Each day has a moment of eternity waiting to nourish the soul, and help awakening, and help sustain the dream of life.”
