H is for Holistic Heart-filled Heavenly Home

H with Hollyhocks

Continuing with our theme of Bridging Worlds with Creative Imagination, we look at the letter H as the perfect representative of BW with CI. Holistic is from the Greek holos or whole, in reference to the theory that regards nature as consisting of wholes.

I like to look at the H as two vertical lines with a horizontal in between. As in, you, me, and what flows between. What flows between is the bridge of Heart. This is the bridge to Heaven. The bridge Home. Welcome to our first hour-long+ show on March 6, 2012.

The Angel Bridge – This is a must-see, beautiful video poem by Trinity Bourne of Openhand.

The word ‘holistic’ was only coined as recently as 1926. The modern version of holistic medicine has only been around since 1960. This show only concerns “holistic” in terms of left-brain – right-brain consciousness. (No small matter!)

Participating in A Month of Letters challenge, has brought back not only my love of letter-writing, but my love of actual alphabet letters. All the different shapes and sizes and ways to write them. And meanings to ascribe to them – on purely visual terms.  Holistic, indeed.

One way to bridge worlds is by not only seeing ‘things’ – but the patterns they make, the designs, in space. This is a form of detachment from objects as only ‘objects.’ You might see a suitcase – but I see a rectangle too. Of course you know it’s a rectangle, but you only see a suitcase. A thing is not only what it is, it’s what we see that it is.

When my son was little I fed him shapes. You may have seen a Ritz cracker with a piece of cheese on top, but I told him it was a circle with a square. He loved tofu, so I cut it into triangles. I said, “Would you like to eat a triangle now?” And he said, “Yes!” We had fun.

Bridging worlds is fun too. I like to think of it as bringing a bit of enchantment into everyday life. (But of course it’s much more than that too…)

    I see it and feel it so clearly. Now what about the unique sound of the letter. H is the out breath and connects me to the divine as A is the in breath. So every breath is THAT WHICH IS!
    This is something that came to mind when I first hear the word ALLAH pronounced by a crowd of Muslims in that most divine of cities called Mazar-i-Sharif in Afghanistan.
