Katherine Jenkins, creator of a wonderful blog called Lessons from the Monk I Married, asked if I'd write a piece to launch her 2012 blog project, 31 Writers, 31 Lessons. Last year she did 365 lessons, which has been turned into a lovely book.
"I am so excited that Penney Peirce has agreed to participate in this AMAZING event for 2012. I first heard of Penney's work when my husband, the former monk, was lying in bed one night reading the book Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration by none other than Penney Peirce! He only had wonderful things to say about it and I couldn't put it down when he passed it on to me. I knew from my own experience that the things Penney described about our own personal vibrations were definitely true. On a whim, I sent an e-mail out to Penney and she responded so quickly that I believed our frequencies must have connected! It was meant to be. So here she is to ring in the new year. Her words here are very powerful to me and I absolutely love her poem! Please welcome Penney Peirce:"
Angel painting, "Blessed by a Winged Being," by Nanne Nyander, Sweden
The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical.
It is the sower of all true science.
He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder
and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.
To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists,
manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty,
which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms—
this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of true religion.
