The longing for the father
Deep longing characterizes mankind - for such a long time now.
The longing to finally return home - to the Kingdom, the Promised Land.
To the Father. To God.
This longing leads us to search in the outside - we look for him, the Father God in relationships, partnerships, in children that come into being....
We search and search and forget ... that HE, God, is very close to us.
He is in us.
God has always opened his gates for us.
He invites us to turn back and to enter into HIM.
Through the gate - which is not the gate of the world, we have to go.
Only each one can go this way for himself. No one else.
God is there - but the action, the conversion, he leaves to US.
So He is there, even if we think, it can not get worse.
He IS, is there, full of patience, full of love, full of joy about EVERYONE who reflects, remembers ...
Yes - we are connected - with him - the Father - eternally in light love, in BEING.
In the juxtaposition we look for the translator.
The translator who brings us to the other shore. To God.
The journey - a journey into the inside - deep into the innermost of ourselves ...
To find HIM there - God - in all the light and love HE has for us as Father,
For this we leave behind us, the memory, the colors, the images...and much more.
Then the search ends.
And we know God is me, God is you - God is us.
Thus the child, wrapped in swaddling clothes - the boat - is the messenger of God.
Consecrated night - Consecrated time
COME - and follow the star.
