My dear ones, three stressors are currently dominating my life. I am praying, am justifying it and telling myself that it will pass.
The first one is that a loved one is having a major, health problem. I am chanting and hoping that it will end well.
The organization which I consider like my second home is having problems. The issues are complex and one is hoping for a favorable outcome.
Today, my landlady has asked us to quit the premises immediately as she needs the space for her family members. We have had these premises for fifteen years and are paying more than the market rent. It is a safe space for our children, for our staff and volunteers. We should have been given three months’ notice.
It is summertime and it’s very hot. I have to look for a suitable place which will accommodate forty kids between the ages of 3—8. We use two rooms and have an open kitchen. My response was deep shock and then I had the urge to retaliate. I did not. Well, I have further accumulated karmas but I am doing my best to find a place. So, we are now on the search for a site where our kids (who live on the street with their parents) will not upset the other residents. We were so happy here.
So now I am telling myself that the divine mother will intervene. What should one think? That all setbacks lead to a better path?
The sun, moon and stars appear every day in some part of the world. The sun rises and sets, the moon comes out at night and lights the sky with its luminescence and the stars gleam in the night sky.
Colors are changing
The colors around us change, they are not constant. The red of the sunrise and sunset, the silver and gold shimmer of the moon and stars. The sky is sometimes blue, orange, purple, pink or black. The forests are different shades of green and there are flowers of varied hues.
While I am writing, I am thinking that everything around us is in flux, so why should not our existence also be in flux.
I must not brood and obsess, I will pray, meditate and perform my sadhana.
There will always be rocks in the road ahead of us. They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how to use them.
I was in darkness, but I took three steps and found myself in paradise. The first step was a good thought, the second, a good word; and the third a good deed. – Friedrich Nietzsche
