A Note about the Manchester Bombing

Published by at 7:48 am under Poetry Chaikhana Misc.

My heart breaks for the people of Manchester traumatized by the recent bombing there.

Every time a terrible incident like this happens, whether it occurs in the west, or Turkey, India, Pakistan, wherever, I always want to make a statement. But it is easy to sound bland or ineffective or, worse, hypocritical.

I won’t try to suggest simplistic solutions, political or spiritual. What it absolutely does require is an engaged heart, courage, rather than fear, and clear seeing.

One response so far

    Timelines are shifting
    So fast

    High Heart
    Knows as
    To where to Focus

    “Don’t try to control life.
    Witness it.”

    Witness it…,indeed.

    And Rumi so beautifully said:

    “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
    and rightdoing there is a field.

    I’ll meet you there.

    When the soul lies down in that grass
    the world is too full to talk about.”
