Welcoming Dragons

Numinous Spirit is mysteriously active in all things.

Through this spirit change and transformation can occur

     And the fates of all things come to their perfection.

Look, there is a spirit within your person.

Now it goes, now it comes.

No one can imagine it.

But if you reverently clean its abode

In the Chinese calendar, this is the year of the Water Dragon, an unpredictable and explosive creative force hidden in the dark waters of the Ghost River, the river of souls and of our personal and collective past.
