Can bring beauty, perfume and flavour to our life

March 30th 2016
The Master Peter Deunov used to say, ‘Should you cry when it’s time to wash your shirt? Should you cry when it’s time to plant seeds in the soil? Should you cry when it’s time to grind the wheat?’ Washing your shirt, planting seeds in the soil and grinding wheat correspond to spiritual activities. Which ones? Washing your shirt means to purify yourself. Planting seeds in the ground means to place good thoughts and feelings both in your own mind and heart and in the mind and heart of others. Grinding wheat is preparing the bread of life. These three activities are accompanied by a certain amount of suffering – but suffering that’s really beneficial! For this divine suffering, when consciously and lovingly borne, imbues everything we live from then on with beauty, perfume and flavour.
