Being comes from non-being

We explore Nice, France. We are on our way to Rome, on a pilgrimage to visit the bones of the Apostles.

We walk toward the beach.

We watch balloons and gymnastics. We climb toward the top of the Parc de la Colline du Chateau.

Lao tsu writes (chapter 40):
“Return is the way of the Tao.
Yielding is the way of the Tao.
All things are born of being.
Being is born of non-being.”

I light the candle from Finesterre, the end of the earth. You and I are travelers on the Way. There is a mystical connection between us. On the altar, is an image from Lourdes and a handkerchief I rubbed on the Lordes Grotto sides, capturing the healing spring water. There is power in this, something beyond understanding. From non-being, comes being.

Meditation is a process that reaches toward non-being. It involves turning away from normal mental activity. Our time in Nice was filled with activity… a feast of perception. My meditation turns away from perception. It focuses on the Inner Way and is a continuation of my prayer for you:
May you find the one who you will love beyond all others.
May you prosper and experience good health.
May you know inner peace.
