Exiled for the truth A journey to an unknown point B where someone is waiting. But there is still a long way to go. (B stands for Bog which means God in Russian)
A while ago I had a chance to visit a rehearsal at an inclusive theatre and meet incredible people who are open to new opportunities and trust the world around them. When I started working with them later I realized that what we are doing together is the most important thing I have ever done in my life. I can’t even explain why. It is like a search for a common language which is almost lost and is so vital to preserve, get a chance to be part of it and convey it to others. We have become so close and I am deeply honoured to be working among such welcoming, trusting and talented people and learn from them.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Gospel of St. Matthew 5:3-10
