There is nothing certain in life apart from the ability of humans to come together in certain situations to offer assistance and support. Usually reserved for a crisis event, that awakens awareness in each individual. Or a moment of brutal and inescapable collective awareness which heralds a global realization, that we really are as pathetically vulnerable as everything else. A time when separate connectivity would be a laughable concept if only the obvious blaring glaring imminent catastrophe remained the illusion it had previously just been.
There is absolutely no ego in pure equanimity, no residue of righteousness in crystal clear compassion and no judgement when faced with inescapable death and destruction.
As emotional torment continues in the minds of those who call Gunung Agung home, it’s down to individuals like Pak Nyoman his family and community, to just be there, in readiness to offer unconditional support and love.
