Stone by Stone: Connecting with the divine
Prayer stones. Ayuthaya, Thailand
From nowhere sadness and an emptiness appears. Does it descend from above, or ascend from within? It hangs like an overcooked egg white does in a soup. Its amorphous,and yet you know it by what it feels like. Strong, pointed edges, as if it was created to tear you.
But, let there be no mistake. Pain, is very real and usually welcome. It making us realise our human condition in most raw of ways.
Carl Jung had said, 'there is no birth of consciousness, without pain. Embrace your sorrow (pain), there your soul will grow'
The best use of this strange feeling --is to remember how it feels and/but help others rise above it. In that service, our pain turns into peace.
