Seeing through Baseball

Today, as for thousands of years, it is possible to find meaning beyond words everywhere – and in this domain beyond words, the religious or spiritual resides.  In an age of gigabytes and picoseconds, we tend to lie too quickly and to miss much that we might see.  Baseball, as it turns out , can help us develop the capacity to see through to another, sacred space.  Indeed, the more we come to appreciate the sport’s intricacies and evocative power, the clearer it is that it shares much with what we traditionally have called religion.

What do you call “religion”?  What do you consider “sacred space”.  Where are your sacred spaces?  Is there a way that a Ballpark, a Yoga class, A knitting project…..can all be sacred?
