Ben Page: Queer Wild

The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely — Carl Jung


Practices that engage you in the natural world beyond the human realm become a practice of unconditional love towards all beings, human and otherwise. We step out beyond the human story that separates us from mountains, skies, and rivers. It is coming home. It’s the same for all of us, however urbanized we may have become, we realize we are an integral part of the natural world.

Remembering also means putting ourselves back together. Coming home is coming to wholeness.

It is essentially transgressive to come to wholeness in a society that encourages us to be fragmented and distracted. If queer identity is transgressive, that transgression is in the service of coming home, coming to wholeness.

Being queer is essentially transgressive because it primes us to to re-wild who you thought you were, and who you were taught to be.

When you turn ‘being present’, in a passive voice, to ‘presencing’ as an act of volition, your relationship to the world and to yourself in it changes completely.

Encounters with the divine have been described as equally filled with both wonder and terror, and so it is when we gaze into our own hearts.

In any situation there can be something to learn that teaches you to let go of your present view of the world.
