Space Design Meets Life Design Meets Spiritual Practice: Outer, Inner, Secret, and Innermost Secret
The phrase "Outer, Inner, Secret, and Innermost Secret" comes from a practice sequence in Tibeten Buddhism.
In the design of space in my apartment, the Outer room in the front room...what most folks would call the "living room." But, for me, it is my Goddess Gathering Room." This is where I recieve guests, entertain, commune. It is my public salon.
The Inner room is my bedroom...very simple. Just a bed from my fathers house and a basket collection from Botswana.
The Secret room is the back room. This is my study, my workroom, my den...my screen room...where I work on the computer and watch TV. This room would conventionally have been the master bedroom.
The Innermost Secret room is a walk-in closet I've converted to my meditation/shrine room.
What are the Outer, Inner, Secret, and Innermost Secret areas of your life as reflected in your living space?
