A series of instruments for meditation and atonement.
Recognise our sin. See the divine in the worm. Start making amend.
Pain is bliss.
Throughout the ages, countless Saints, individuals and whole religious orders saw and still see it as their sacred purpose to sacrifice their whole lives to atone for the sins of others by taking their place, by suffering on their behalf. While saving a soul remains a very honorable intention, saving the planet and so humanity is today’s priority.
Still, can mysticism help us embrace a more sustainable way of life?
How can we learn from those who managed over thousand of years to transform their suffering into grace?
Can the idea of redemptive suffering inspire us to make an extra effort in the place of those we know won’t make any, without pointing our finger at them?
Can we eventually sacrifice our comfort for the sake of all with pleasure?
Renunciation can be gold.
The kneeling log is a hybrid. It is sacred and profane at the same time.
Nevertheless it’s an artifact of meditation, of prayer, of contemplation, of expiation.
The future is ascetic.
And full of joy.
