Tea

Tea

You sit in your chair drinking tea.

Then a thought comes to mind: “The world is on fire”.

You ask yourself: “The world is on fire: sweetheart is that true in this moment?”

And you find yourself, in your chair drinking tea

Then a thought comes to mind: “We are at war”.

You ask yourself: “We are at war: sweetheart is that true in this moment?”

And you find yourself, in your chair drinking tea

And then comes the next one and the next one and the next one ….

And you ask yourself again and again and again …

And you find yourself again and again and again …

Hand

Hand

When we take the hand
of another human being
and feed her when she is hungry
comfort him when he is sad

When we take the hand
of another human being
and pray with her the prayers
hold him in our arms

When we take the hand
of ourselves
and love the hand that holds us
and feel equality caress us

We know the hand
we know the need
we know the prayer
we know it all …

Praying

Praying

Praying is discovering and seeing, in ourselves, that we are light, innocence, peace. Prayer mirrors to us that we are innocent, fragile, little, helpless. It enables us to connect with the innocence in ourselves, the fragility, the littleness, the helplessness. When we pray we briefly allow ourselves to kneel down, to be still, to be emptiness in the presence of the light that we are. When we pray we connect with our possibility to give and to receive.

The secret of praying is so small that it is so big. It is everything that is born in you, all the time. And sometimes it helps us to see that. Dear child, you are the Child and God and Love and Light and Truth, for ever … Amen …
