I float in between the boundaries of shock and realization.
I am on a path gifted through the breaking only true suffering can engender. And on this path there has been a consistency of pain. The more I open, expand, the more my life continues to fall beneath my feet. nothing is solid, nothing is real.
“Transformation is painful. A Master has to work with a hammer in his hand.”
May god have mercy on the many people today, including my family, who have been deeply affected by the loss of a place built on hard work, heart & soul. May the fire that burns through the walls of an impermanent structure, clear and purify the space, so our hearts can even more deeply embrace the awe of our Master. and continually allow us to submit our powerlessness to His will.
“For those who are afflicted with disaster, glad tidings await them: so remain patient and happy with your Lord. ‘He cannot be questioned as to what He does, while they will be questioned.” (Quran, 21:23).
