It is cold and windy today. A good Friday weather…a bit gloomy,…a good day for introspection…I guess,
Spring has been so incredibly beautiful since my arrival mid february,
The sky turquoise blue allmost every day, trees in bloom, just gorgeous,
But reality contains : sun shine, rain, wind, cold, warm, hot, too hot, nice days, gloomy days, the whole range of possibilities are dancing in a dynamic
weaving of time and space and are making our lives full.
On good Friday Christ was crucified. Why does one call this good Friday ?
What is the secret of suffering ?
Imagine living in
a place that allways has nice weather, just nice, not too cold, not too warm, not too much rain…I guess such places exist, the Canaries or other blessed places…but of course we all know that even there there might be gloomy inner days, inner
storms, droughts, floods, suffering. We all know that the blue sky and the sun are not enough to show us the way to happiness.
And we also know that admidst rain, cold, gloomy weather, a candle, a warm fireplace, a shared cup of warm tea,
the howling of the wind, or only the sound of rain drops hammering on a tin roof can fill you with the real taste of the present moment…, can fullfill you.
