My thoughts: on compassion and human condition


One of the sculptures from series 'Human condi...

“We’re always praying for certainty, but it’s always uncertainty we’re receiving as answer to our prayers and offerings.

What’s certain is that we are all the same, all bundled by our common human condition, always.
So how can one not be compassionate towards the suffering of his brothers and sisters in bondage?”

 

Leonard Cohen – Show me the place (Where the Word Became a Man…)


Show me the place where you want your slave to go
Show me the place I’ve forgotten I don’t know
Show me the place for my head is bending low
Show me the place where you want your slave to go
Show me the place help me roll away the stone
Show me the place I can’t move this thing alone
Show me the place where the Word became a man
Show me the place where the suffering began
The troubles came I saved what I could save
A thread of light, a particle, a wave
But there were chains so I hastened to behave
There were chains so I loved you like a slave
Show me the place where you want your slave to go
Show me the place I’ve forgotten I don’t know
Show me the place for my head is bent and low
Show me the place where you want your slave to go

The troubles came I saved what I could save
A thread of light, a particle, a wave
But there were chains so I hastened to behave
There were chains so I loved you like a slave
Show me the place
Show me the place help me roll away the stone
Show me the place I can’t move this thing alone
Show me the place where the word became a man
Show me the place where the suffering began
