Friday Poem: Life

IMG_4471 (Large)

A lot of terrible things seem to have happened lately, the earthquake in Nepal being the biggest. There is no one to blame in the case of such natural disasters, and it is natural to feel helpless in the face of it – especially watching it on a screen from far away…

Life is suffering –
Empathy is painful
Love is hard
Peace  is impossible.

Once you’ve understood
all that
Dearest Chela
The rest is easy.IMG_4306 (Large)

If you didn’t know, “Chela’ is a student of a spiritual teacher.

If you can, you could make a donation to Oxfam, UNHCR or one of the other charities working to assist the thousands made homeless and without access to clean water and food in Nepal.

Or one of the other places on our shared earth where suffering is sharper than for many of us…

Every little bit helps.IMG_4216 (Large)
