Wisdom

I do not see tragedy in anything that happens to me. Firstly because my fundamental horizon is Christ and I know that anything happens if I take hold of His feet I would not be lost.

Today I have interviwed a very old priest with enviable serenity who was imprisioned by the communists.

I have asked him among many questions how does he still keep the peace under the asault of so many negative events (including the personal ones ; the loss of one of his children) and under the informational war that drives us crazy.

He has answered in a simple manner : « I do not see tragedy in anything that happens to me. Firstly because my fundamental horizon is Christ and I know that anything anything happens if I take hold of His feet I would not be lost therefore I am not afraid of anything and I have no regrets, anything that happens is as per His devine iconomy. 99 % from the quantity of information represents a deviation from the reality. It is a lie. And any lie would be descovered at the right moment. There is no sense in being worried. This life whose limit is death  represents a preparation for the integral spiritual life. Therefore if we can go beyond the material world we can taste this reality.
