Manifestations - Fall 2010

Welcome to the Fall 2010 issue of Manifestations, 
the literary journal of the Fourth Order. 

Enjoy the issue and please pass our link around to your friends.

This Issue Explores the intersection where inner and outer
meet: the states of being and stations of the heart encountered on the way, lenses through which one aspect of truth may be experienced, where even illusion or delusion may reveal truth as we see in Flo Golod’s short story, Practicing for Heaven.

Diversity: Established and emerging writers and artists from six different faith traditions, four continents, from homeless veteran, veiled woman, seed banking farmer, scholars, even a red dressed cleavage exposing preacher,
the sublime to the outrageous.

Interactivity: the new format allows your playful or serious written and artistic responses to individual work.

Challenge Submission for January issue: Along with regular submissions we are issuing a special challenge to create a youtube video of Hermit John's poem, En las Profundidades de Mi Ser, found in this issue. Your videos will be featured in the next issue of Manifestations. 

The Collective Dreaming Project is dedicated to listening to the communicating World's Dream, and giving its voice to the human world. It seeks submissions of dreams of the earth and cosmos to collate them, and look for patterns and themes within the dreams. The Project is looking for a specific type of dream: dreams with images of the natural world that have strong feeling and resonance, that are radiant, peculiar, odd, out of place, even terrifying or horrid; as well as those dreams that have images in the human world that are artistic, handmade, beautiful and alive. Manifestations will dedicate space in its upcoming issues to submitters who respond to their dream with visual art and/or writing. See Submission Guidelines.

As always we are looking to penetrate experience seeking the unifying voice beneath the world's apparent divisions, a voice that hums in the timbre of the great cross cultural wisdom traditions. We are enchanted by works that reflect both the beauty and terror of life and dialogue in a vital way with the human condition.

Peace and all good to you from the wild and always somewhat in disarray companions of the Fourth Order.
