I climbed up to Sourton Tor here on Dartmoor on a cold, but sunny afternoon recently and at the top was this trig point. I had never seen one before. I googled it while catching my breath. Trigpoints are the common name for “triangulation pillars”. These are concrete pillars, about 4′ tall, which were used by the Ordnance Survey in order to determine the exact shape of the country. … The OS provide an introduction to the National Grid on their website. They are all over the world, the Empire State Building is one! With the advent of GPS, they are no longer necessary, but enthusiasts love them.
Throughout history the way to find the way changed. It got better and better. I liken this to our spiritual understanding. It gets better and better. The ‘way’ is already laid out, determined and established. We just have to remember our spiritual compass point with every challenge we meet. I’m including the words of this hymn, below, which is a favourite, because it so beautifully uplifts thought and brings sense of being encompassed in the wonder of Divinity.
From sense to Soul my pathway lies before me, / From mist and shadow into Truth’s clear day; / The dawn of all things real is breaking o’er me, / My heart is singing: I have found the way. /
I reach Mind’s open door, and at its portal / I know that where I stand is holy ground; / I feel the calm and joy of things immortal, / The loveliness of Love is all around. /
The way leads upward and its goal draws nearer, / Thought soars enraptured, fetterless and free; / The vision infinite to me grows clearer, / I touch the fringes of eternity.
May your way be always clear. Blessings.
