The simple mud hut

 

” Experience has taught me that the simple mud hut with a thatched roof, with no furniture and no conveniences, is sufficient for all basic human needs and can bring more peace and joy than many of the houses of the rich.

I thus began to understand the meaning of the words of the Gospel : ‘ Blessed are the poor, blessed are you that mourn, blessed are you that are hungry. ‘   The poor of India suffer and go hungry, but they have a blessing on their lives which the Western world has lost. ”

Father Bede Griffiths

One thought on “The simple mud hut

  1. I have more than enough.
    None of this brings me joy.
    I look at these objects that surround me
    wishing them all away.
    I have come to understand that these objects bring me pain.
    yet I am trapped in a cage of my own making.
    Fearful to walk away.
    Afraid of what might be.
    This cage continues to shrink
    I can barely stand
    on my knees I pray
    Please ….
    I know not what
    or even who
    I only know that I am becoming smaller
    as I grow.
