I must now strive to retrieve my purity

my purity of thought and intent

A pure thought is one that stems from truth and love married together

money anguishes aren’t

nor are physical cravings

nor is the need to be admired and read

nor are existential doubts

All those are scaffoldings, useful scaffoldings

tools to understand and build our wisdom

but once our cathedral is completed

they lose their utility and become encumbering instead

making the cathedral lose some of its beauty and magnificence


What is purity then

it’s when my mind and my heart and my body agree together

and not when I privilege one of them over the others

it’s when I give unconditional love to people around me

without waiting anything in return

it’s when the needs of my body correspond to those of my heart

it’s when I have entire faith in life

and it’s when I share my light and my truth with everyone else, including you

finding a balance between the bridge and the constellation



“Three Eyes” is a drawing by Chantal Peguiron

    Oh, goodness. THIS.

    Hi Erik! Glad to stumble upon your site! Yours is one hidden gem in the web 🙂 Your blog entries are so on point. Thank u for sharing!

    As for the topic, purity, along with innocence, modesty, chastity, humility, self control, among others — these are some of the virtues I cherish so much. Though it saddens me how rare they seem to occur in adults esp. in this generation (children are an exception of course, as they are the epitome of those ethereal, transcendental qualities).

    Anyway, thanks for your posts! All the best 🙂
