Living Under a Tent
Lately, I was at a public art event. One of the installations was a group of fifteen small tents crocheted by hand. The little tents beamed with vibrant, powerful colors and at the same time looked fragile. Feelings of sadness and hope rushed through me. The little camp of tents reminded me of all the thousands and possibly millions of us who at one point or another did not have a home and had to live in a tenuous structure supported only by our hope, faith, and trust in the benevolent nature of life. (The countless migrants are experiencing this right now as well as all the victims of the hurricane).
So many times in my own life I was “living in a tent,” which to me meant living through a hard period filled with unknowns, questions, doubts, and fears. Moments in my life when I felt like I was sinking into the quick sands of existence. During these times, I was forced to reach out to a power greater than myself, even when I was not convinced at all there was one. I was humbled and helpless enough to allow my heart to open and receive. These frightening periods of my life ended up being my most inspiring. It was during these times I found my connection to the Spirit. The Jewish holiday of Sukkot which is celebrated right now, commands Jews to create little structures made of wood brush and curtains for walls. It comes to remind us of the tenuous nature of our earthly life and at the same time the infinite source of support available to us by Spirit. All we need is an open heart. When we are passing through a hard time and are not really sure what’s going on or what is going to happen next, all we need is courage, faith, and trust that we are going to get guidance and support. Our Hearts is as brave as we make it.
