the occasion of covid finds us again at this nursing home. covid is a great respecter of age, finding mature elder bodies to be the very best hosts: simply too tired to refuse entry, so come on in! it is surely the way of nature of the elderly to make way for the new generations of fresh young bodies to carry on. they have the strength & resilience to do the most necessary things in this world. caring for it comes to them now: to these lively & eager fresh fledglings who flex their ready muscles & minds as they wait for their turn in the sun. in the meanwhile, at nursing homes throughout the struggling world, the designated elderly await their journeys home to the pure land where all bodies are composed of luminous light & originate from the universal refulgence, starshine, & from Shiva's abiding love. but weep not, for there is no suffering, & this fateful transition comes to all of us in good & proper time, like a graduation party after the most difficult course ever encountered at university. now our preparation is over & done, the course is completed & graduation is in the past. we are now freed from old obligations. nature has taken its given course. all is well in the vaster holy realm wherein we find our true home of the heart. it is far beyond the portal that covid opened to us for a brief time, yet it works well for our sacramental homecoming. Shiva waits for us there to welcome us with song & dance! i hear that the music & light show is out of this world!
