In the name of Love,

We shattered our dreams,

And found they were hollow all along.

We did not even try to piece them back together.

The small and mighty things

I like to stop sometimes, on a sunny day, and feel the gentle breeze. To my body it is such a delicate and fleeting thing. Here though is the point of stopping; because in that small and delicate breeze is a whole world of force and existence. When I try to stop and think of all the little things that had to occur in order to bring that breeze to me I am staggered. All of the world, it seems, must have been ordered in such an incredible way, just so, in order for the forces all around me to have brought it to me; from corridors of air flow, the chaotic system of weather, the spinning of the Earth and the heat from the sun. When I try to follow all of the causes of such a small event to their roots, I find that there is a vast, unimaginable scale to it all, so much so that it seems the entire cosmos must have been ordered exactly so for it to happen, and this is beautiful.

The soul is our sense of connection to the world around us, strong or weak. The things that are good for the soul; reading, travelling, walking, meeting new people, loving one another, these develop our understanding of the ‘other’. The purpose of the soul is to help us to realise that the self and the ‘other’ are one and the same, and that our borders extend far beyond ourselves.

“Desolation is the condition of someone who is bereft of help. For a person is not desolate merely…”

“Desolation is the condition of someone who is bereft of help. For a person is not desolate merely because he is alone, any more than he is secure from desolation when he is in a crowd.”

“Aren’t people just the same distance from God wherever they are? And wherever they are, don’t they have just the same view of what is coming about?”
