compassion and community

“All suffering cries out to God and elicits divine compassion and community.” ~Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation
Lord, hear our cry and have mercy.

a treasure close at hand

Phil Cousineau in “The Art of Pilgrimage” tells the tale of an old rabbi named Eisik, a delightful story about a dream, a journey, and an encounter with a fellow dreamer whose message at last sends Eisik home to find the treasure that had been there all along.

Note that the question mark from the previous post called “quest-ions” became what (kind of) resembles a person, or at least the ‘j’ in the word, journey.  Also, the sun from “quest-ions” became the golden treasure there all along.
