I am walking and contemplating while snow falls and a squirrel eyeballs me cautiously. And it feels so right as I think of the continuous day by day unfolding of those inner stirrings, those inner cosmic dances that never cease while non-stop wasting occurs in the physical realm of existence, day in, day out. There is reverence. It is a gift, no doubt. It is justified. It is liberating. It is transformative, that is if we are aware, if we acknowledge and believe. And new mercy is evident when we wake up every morning, breathing in and out, making us conscious of the moment and the blossoming moment-to-moment silent passing of the seasons of life. And it only tells me one thing: that it is about love. The kind of love that is deep, steady, consistent, humbling, nurturing and comforting. And that kind of love rules, no matter what. That’s the genius of that kind of love.
I don’t know the logic of the universe as to why there is this mysterious geography that separates peace and suffering. I don’t know why people have to endure harsh times many times over in their lifetime. But do we really need to know why? Or do we just have to carry them and continue existing because of love? Deep in my bones, I just simply know that there is an inner renewal happening day by day in each one of us and I suspect that that renewal is one of the reasons why there is that mysterious geography between peace and suffering. One thing I know though is that the mystery that creates the logic of the heart articulates the reason for that renewal. And it is about deep love. It is about truth. It is about justice. It is lightly snowing as I write this while the sun is in its blazing glory.

Early morning. A faint bluish light. A profound transition. An unfolding of clarity, of our essential nature, of what is true. An opening up of consciousness and finding where we are, as we see, as we simply know. And it is moving towards wholeness. A beautiful reflection of restoration.

The mind is clear. The mind is silent. And there is that other deep sense of silence. The mind surrenders to this vast and deep silence that is without borders and beyond everything. And rapture happens.
On a cold grey winter afternoon, the sun breaks in and spills over its light. It is a revelation without words. It is immaculate. And it matters, like a breath.
