My Own Unique Door

ireland_2013_0923

The world as pure object is something that is not there. It is not a reality outside us for which we exist….It is a living and self-creating mystery of which I am myself a part, to which I am myself, my own unique door.

– Thomas Merton, Contemplation in a World of Action

Resurrection and Touching the Mystery of Life

ireland_2013_273

Let us shine the light on what we fear – and find Resurrection where we least expect it

There is a certain fear of death that comes from not having lived yet. I had to face it myself when I had cancer a few years ago. I don’t think I was afraid of death at that time, but I also knew I had already lived. Once you know you have touched upon this mystery of life, you are not afraid of death. There is an existential terror about losing what you’ve never found. Something in me says, “I haven’t done ‘it’ yet.” I haven’t experienced the stream of life yet. I haven’t touched the real, the good, the true, and the beautiful—which is, of course, what we were created for.

This is truly the color of the sky at the Dublin Airport. There's a little dodging of the foreground and a ND filter applied. Only it was an arrival, not a departure. Amazing!
