Banyen's Description: 

Beloved artist and song enchantress Ann Mortifee is also a deep wonderer who many years ago began the practice of awakening each morning at sunrise. During these hours of quiet, she developed a fertile stillness that has led to an ever-deepening awareness. From Ann’s recordings of her thoughts in her journal, she has crafted this beautiful book.

Our lives are meant to be mysterious journeys, unfolding one step at a time. Often we follow a path worn smooth by many and in doing so we lose our authenticity, our individuality, our own unique expression. Do not be afraid to lose your way. Out of chaos, clarity will eventually arise. Out of not knowing, something new and unknown will ultimately come. Do not order things too swiftly. Wait and the miracle will appear.

In Love with the Mystery is a book of deep listening. In consort with her husband the flute maestro Paul Horn, Ann has recorded some of these inspirational passages in a sensitive and beautiful musical background on the accompanying CD. Ann’s voice transports the listener to places where one can meditate on the wisdom within one’s own heart. This musical offering is a marriage of two visionary souls traveling together—and can be experienced alone or in union with the book.

When we anchor our consciousness in the belly, we are literally bringing Heaven to Earth. The ego, which is so often motivated by insecurity, relaxes. As the ego lets go of its need for control, it finds itself at peace and in service to the Divine Will.

In Love with the Mystery is a labour of love and beauty—a reflective and companionable gift for all those in our lives who are learning to love the mystery of being alive. And Courtney Milne’s amazing colour photographs take the book into a whole other dimension.

We are turning base metals into gold. We are transforming ourselves so a new era for humanity can begin. We are surrendering our separateness so we can harmonize once more with Creation. The time for this work is now. Now, before it is too late. Give everything you have to this great awakening. Sacrifice all your resistance upon the altar of your own becoming. Nothing less will do.
