Sometimes in the linear, controlled world of this early 21st century, we must unleash an elixir of delightful chaos to balance out the yang with some yin. These sacraments heal our mundane stress and fear, replacing them with enthusiasm and bliss and transcendence.
The taste of such alchemical champagne becomes a bridge to each others’ souls, uniting them in celebration and praise. The cult of Dionysus is alive and well, serving up its constituents the nectar of joy and lightheartedness so essential to our evolution.
