Awake!

 

Awake!

Live as if you have never lived before.

There is a stirring deep inside of you.

A stirring that only time and exploration

can unearth.

Awake!

To what lies deep inside.

Your calling, your path, your life.

Awake!

Live as if you are a fragile vessel for something greater,

for something far beyond.

Awake!

Inside of you lies all possibility.

Inside of you lies the sacred.

Inside of you lies divinity.

Awake!

Live your life as if you have never lived before.

The Irish word for Burren is Boireann and means “stony place” or “rocky land.” The Burrens are about 100 square miles of limestone surface that make farming very difficult. Oliver Cromwell had a surveyor who described this land as a “savage land” with “no water enough to drown a man, nor tree to hang him, nor soil to bury him.”

This is a photo I took of Poulnabrone Dolmen.

Poulnabrone in Irish means “hole of the sorrows” and Dolmen means “stone table.” This is an example of a Portal Tomb. It was built around 2,500 BC, although other sources say that it was erected as late as 3,800 BC. Inhumed remains were found in the chamber. 

Poulnabrone is generally considered to contain the remains of the special dead and to have been a center of ceremony and symbolism.

The Cliffs of Moher found in the photo above that I took on a trip to the West Coast of Ireland in fall of 2014 are also part of the Burrens.

The Burrens are located on the West Coast of Ireland in County Clare.
