Sacredness is a holy cow in our secular, materialist culture. There, but not there; observable in myriad forms yet unnamed as a rule and mostly avoided. What do we mean by sacredness? Does the sacred require religion to house it in our lives and consciousness? Does the sacred require particular treatment, demand special psychological or spiritual posturing for us to appreciate it?

Our lives are defined, and saved, by the quest for meaning. The ability to name and to be inspired by our particular purpose determines not only the quality of our lives but our very survival. The quest for meaning is our most formidable antidote against despair. Rather than encourage the personal quest for meaning, ours is a culture that emphasizes power chasing outside of ourselves through competition, material success, and the “pursuit of happiness,” which is a contradiction in terms.

Until we question the nature of our story, we cannot truly know ourselves nor discover our true identity, the eternal power under the skin of superficial biography. Waking up to the fact that we are not our story changes a seeker’s life completely. We become the authors of our own lives rather their unwitting victims. Story can then serve its sacred function as a tool for enlightenment.
