The Divine Imagination

The Divine Imagination. Too often we remain distanced from what is truly sacred-the world around us and the divine imagination that created it. Here John O'Donohue immerses us in the greatest miracle of Celtic spirituality, namely its tradition of experiencing the divine as a lyrical, tender, creative force not visible, but always present in all things. The ancient Celts sensed an invisible world around them, the great unknown from which they came and the source of eternal wonder in their lives. Through prayer, O'Donohue teaches, we may enter directly into this.

The Divine Imagination John O'Donohue

When God is hardened into a visible image and worship reduced to a program, we remain exiled from what is truly sacred – the world around us and the "divine imagination" that created it. In this third volume of his Celtic wisdom trilogy, John O’Don-ohue immerses us in what has been called the "greatest miracle" of Celtic spirituality – non-dualism – and its tradition of experiencing the divine as a lyrical, tender, creative force not visible, but always present.

When the people of ancient Ireland celebrated their four great solstice rituals, they allowed their own imaginations to flow into a secret immensity – the divine imagination that continuously creates and renews all of life. True worship, O’Donohue shows, is not a mental process, but a way of living fully that allows for the flowering of our own divinity. In these ancient ways of knowing God, we find eternal teachings for connecting with the sacred – ways that have helped Irish faith to grow and flourish to this day. Complete with original Celtic teachings and enlivened with poetry and philosophy from past and present, The Divine Imagination calls for us to approach each day with wonder, knowing that God is always present and that we are already home.

John O' Donohue rhythmically leads the soul and mind on an intimate exploration of self-realization of our divine heritage through the graced gift of our humanity..

Throughout time the Holy Spirit has worked through individuals to bring humanity closer to the divine. Sometimes this work manifests itself in an individual who is capable of doing great things with the blessings that were given them. Rev. O'Donohue is such a man, and yes he is still a priest. Once a priest always a priest. This like all others works John has done provide simple advice on how to build ones understanding of life, self, and the divine. John's approach to teaching is a `Celtic' approach as old as the stones that make up the many walled fields of Ireland. Many listeners will not be used to the rhythms of Celtic life, and thus they will find John's respectful approach to a subject boring. We saw this fact manifest in the previous reviewers comments. The Celtic approach to life is never direct, and always mindful. It is this first lesson that John teaches the listener without ever addressing it directly that is the most important lesson to learn. This is the lesson of mindful patience. Without this basic life skill we can never progress in our relationship with the divine. Once we have learned this lesson, and listen again to John's lecture we will then be able to understand what he is addressing in his lectures. The real blessing is that each book, or more especially taped lecture has layered teachings. These teachings are revealed only through rereading, or listening to his lecture. This type of teaching, and systematic unveiling of teachings is the heart and Soul of the Celtic approach to teaching anything. So in conclusion, if you are looking to hear, and learn the subject material from a true modern day Christian Bard then John's works are for you. If you are looking for a quick secret to life answers in a book in the form of a milk carton advertisement then perhaps a quick read of one of the many Celtic Spiritual web pages is the ticket for you. As for me, I hope you take the time to sit (metaphorically speaking) at the feet of one of the last Cludee's left in the world.

This work is breathtakinly beautiful. It captures the Celtic love of the imaginative approach to life. In it we learn why the Celts respected the Divine Intellect and the and Divine Will, but resonated especially with the Divine Imagination. The poetry in this tape is so beautiful I had to stop it again and again to savor it. I listen to it over and over and each time I catch something I missed before.
