This blog post is not about weight loss – at least not physical weight loss.
The Celts use the term “thin places” to describe moments when heaven and earth seem to blend. They are places and times when we feel completely connected to What’s Holy – where we release fear, anger, confusion and anything weighing us down.
Not too far from my NC home is a beach called Bird Island – even though it’s not really an island anymore. Tucked away in the dunes of Bird Island is a mailbox with “KINDRED SPIRIT” on it. The mailbox is filled with journals – some full, some waiting to be filled. Legend has it that the KS mailbox has been there since ’81.
Thousands visit the KS mailbox each year to leave their own messages or to simply read the messages of others.
It’s holy ground. It’s a magical place. It’s a thin place.
