That Deep 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.

    your very last sentence with the juxtaposition of snow and sun gives an effective closure, summing up with imagery what you had said earlier.
