School of love – create with joy

It is good if everybody has a chance to talk, yet that only doubles the pain in case nobody listens.

It is good if everybody has a chance to talk, yet that only doubled the pain because nobody listened.
As we realize our problems as the misunderstandings, the conflict hurts doubly: the understanding of the meaninglessness of our passions colour up everything as the futility. That increased my despair and led to the hospital for people with the psychiatric disorders in Klaipeda. So I appeared in the art therapy class…Wow! Love was reigning there. The mental hospital was a school of love. I took my camera and became the participant of the class.

My eyes were captured by the Molar King freedom from the attachments means not the wings, but the blindness to the talents God gave to us.

Many are afraid to greet people with the psychiatric disorders, and such mindset hurts the most. It hurts not only the rejected but the world because the prejudices rob people of their freedom to smile and put them into the slavery to the cunning standards of beauty.

The depth of the steps left in life is determined by love for each other. Spiritual healing begins with self-recognition in the next.

  1. Thank you for sharing this post at Friendship Friday, Tomas. What you shared was really poignant and I”m so glad that you’ve found a “school of love” where you experience joy and acceptance. Few things bother me as much as not being heard.

    I love the quote you shared as well!


  2. I suppose you have seen my latest post about the Wall .what you describe here is one stone of the wall . We build around ourself . Just because we can not face the facts and don’t want to see the possibility we could be this person and not the one looking at them.
