is a transliteration of the Greek word, εγερσις, which has the meaning of being roused to life. Thus, it is my hope that what you find on this blog will empower, arouse, stimulate, excite, and animate your life--your soul, your spirit--the wholeness of who you are.

There's Souls in Them

The words of Origen inspired this altered book spread.

" Since Christ is a 'fountain' and 'rivers of living water flow from him', and since he is 'bread' and gives 'life.' It should not seem strange that he is also 'nard' and 'gives forth fragrance' and is the 'ointment' by which those who are anointed themselves become Christ . . . ['anointed ones']. . . Each one of the senses of the soul becomes Christ. . . So too is he called 'ointment' or 'nard' so that the soul's sense of smell might receive the fragrance of the Word."

Origen from An Anthology of Christian Mysticism.
