Garden of the Soul

Nurturing and growing our souls is like maintaining a beautiful garden. It takes a lot of work and commitment. There is the tilling the soil, adding of fertilisers, planting of seeds, watering, and weeding. There are periods of silence when there seem to be nothing happening in the garden. At other times, there seem to be so much that needs to be done. The garden is constantly changing. So does our souls.

Rainbow

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on earth.” Genesis 9:16. I am struck by the fact that the covenant is with all living creatures, not just humankind alone. A God who cares for all creatures great and small is a trustworthy God.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all…
by Cecil Frances Alexander

Faces #3

One of the great mystery of ancient Angkor. In Bayon Temple at Angkor, there were 200 smiling faces curved on 50 towers of which 37 is still standing. No one really knows whose face it depicts. Some believe it represents the Buddhist embodiment of compassion, Lokesvara. Others suggest it represents Brahma, a Hindu deity. Yet others believe that is the face of King Jayavarman VII, the builder of the temple. In the meantime, the face’s enigmatic smile hide its true identity for over a thousand years.
