For Freedom

For freedom, I bleed, fight, survive. For freedom, my eyes and my hands, like a fleshy tree, generous and captive, I give to the surgeons. For freedom I feel more hearts in my chest than there are grains of sand: foam flows into my veins and I enter the hospitals, and enter in cotton balls […]

“Sophia perennis”: eternal wisdom

Sophia perennis, “eternal wisdom” is not a religion. It is the platform that gives us access to the experience of our true being. It is the essence of all religions, the experience of reality from which all religions stem and to which all confessions take us. Sophia perennis is the acknowledgement of the salvation message […]

Silent and ardent

In the most distant star of the universe, in the most fragile bud of grass, in the smile, in the kiss and the embrace, in the depths of the heart, on the highest summits, in the deepest trenches, love dwells silent and ardent. (Miguel Ángel Mesa Bouzas) *** Do not allow that vital breath that […]

Frontiers

We do not want to belong to the world of frontiers made of walls. Where is the frontier between poverty and wealth, truth and lie, love and hatred, sea and land. Where is the frontier that separates people, that which so many pursue, that of birds that migrate in freedom, that of those who set […]

Another model is possible] that (by a simple oversight, we assume) you attributed to Roger Lenaers. In it you use […]

Michel Berhocoirigoin. The death of a righteous man

At the age of 69, before his time, Michel Berhocoirigoin left us quietly and peacefully. He was a big soul of the Basque country. Farmer, trader unionist, militant of the countryside, peasant of all struggles. He was brought to justice after he had registered in Basque the name of the farmer’s union he had founded. […]

Praying

Praying You, I get close without arriving. Prayer is present in all beings as an impulse towards their source. While I beg, I exile from the one Who is in what is given and I turn away from the one Who lies in what I live in. One knows it will be Sea -it is-, […]

Spirituality and Class Struggle

Following a recent talk on “spirituality and political liberation”(*), a friend wrote to me: “I would like you to share your view on spirituality and class struggle.” A good challenge in 2021, a year and time of so many pandemics, many more than that of COVID 19 in all its virulence. Here are some basic […]
