From Laura, 29 December 2013, Rumi.
“The chemistry of mind is different from the chemistry of love. The mind is careful, suspicious, he advances little by little. He advices “Be careful, protect yourself” Whereas love says “Let yourself, go!” The mind is strong, never fells down, while love hurts itself, fells into ruins. But isn’t it in ruins that we mostly find the treasures? A broken heart hides so many treasures.”
2020 is nearly over. I am personally moving into a calmer phase in my life, starting to practise yoga again, and to meditate, in nature, always thankful for what I have. Everything is as it should be.
In an altered year I hope that we have all learned some lessons and in the future we will respect life in every form and be a voice for the voiceless, and fight against injustice, cruelty, corruption, greed and war.
We have felt what it’s like to be ‘caged’, our movements restricted. Spare a thought for all the creatures that are in captivity, in zoos, circuses, etc,. and the farmed animals. This is their lives. They are caged forever until their lives end.
