The Innermost Decisions

Here I am with the spiritual outcome of a wonderful if not AWESOME easter sunday.

Instead of attending the sunday service of local lutheran church I decided to take a walk along the most beautiful landscape I am able to reach by car. This landscape is for me like a little paradise, in a way of a pre-valent heaven.

I always appreciated GODs nature and creation. A day like last sunday is a perfect creation of wholesome holiness, with a magical mysterically power of healing. It starts with the blurring sunbeams, moves on to the trees full of opening buds and doesn’t end with the smell of an arousing, fertile and wettish soil.

There’s music in the air. There’s wind in my hair. There’s a deerstand everywhere.

I felt the urge to take 267 photos of all of the beauty but realized that this could NOT be useful. Taking photos immediately distracts you from the genuine access to the pure nature and to the spirit of the morning.

Taking photos is kind of counter-productive for a spiritual experience.

Nevertheless I could not longer withstand this urgent drive when I met with this beautiful ponds between the woodlands and the meadows….it’s only natural.

I am extremely “pond-fond” or better pointed out: “fond of ponds” – a feature I was simply born with. According to that I like everything that swims, everything that dives, and everything that flows. I used to build great and large dam-projects, finally leading one ore another little creek into a very new streambed. (I use to return to the places of my childhood to check for the state of wellfare of my childhood projects! And yes – my dams stand their ground, no matter what! *yee-haw*)

Enough words for the moment, let us now come to the interesting thing here: the pictures. I invested more than dirty shoes but even dirty trousers and hands to manage taking these. Have fun – enjoy!

[There are captions added to each and every photo but be aware that this doesn’t necessarily mean there’s something informative in it. Take it nice and easy.]

You may feel like there’s an “upside-down”-feature but NO: this pole came out of heaven right in front of my camera….

Thank you for attending this nature-bounded divine service with me. Do me a favour and spread the word on your blog.Thanks in advance.

What Is Easter?

Easter is all about father and son.

Easter is also about a lamb and its slaughterer. It’s about blood. It’s about a FATHER who is going to slaughter his only son. It’ s about Abraham who was FORCED to give his sons life as a sacrifice, slaughtered by his OWN hand. Just taking the live of one’s own, beloved son?!

Really?!

Forced by GOD to slaughter one’s own son?? Really?!

And the son? Did he KNOW his father was going to slaughter not a widder, but him? Did he feel the tension betweeen his father and —- GOD? Did he feel the fear that was underneath the mask on his fathers face?! Did he see what was coming? Why didn’t he run AWAY?! WHO is able to sacrifice himself to be slaughtered by the hands of his OWN father??

YES, easter is a story about the father and the son.
