This Cosmic Insanity

 

The Divine is never distant from the distressed. But why the distress in the first place?

Suffering is not to be explained as simply ‘Self-Love’ or similar moral variant gone cancerous and hence at some distant point in the future, fully fixable. You can reach for Karma and ‘Original Sin’, but they spring leaks in a genuine storm.

You could have chosen your parents with exemplary care, be healthy and educated, rich and famous. But there is no form of Insurance that covers this everyday-catastrophe.

And no human calibrator, no distinguished doctor of medicine, no revered writer on the human-condition, no forgotten mythic poet, no scribbler of Hollywood script, reaches within striking distance of this Cosmic Insanity.

A Divine Madness that plays out everyday in every place and in every person on this blessed planet.
