An answer to Stephanie

I have been many times to Rome, but this time I finally made it to Santa Maria in Trastevere. Visiting this church was the most meaningful moment of the whole trip.

Unbelievable beauty, the exquisite mosaics there were breathtaking, like the whole mighty silence inside, like the gorgeous paintings and the whispering perennial light…Time stood still…You could feel the vague whisper of eternity…

Out of the blue some monks began to sing the most otherworldly chants…At this point I no longer knew whether this was happening or I was dreaming.

In moments like this, you feel that this is the “real” reality. My life aspiration is this quiescent beauty, this pure space permeated by the sweet fragrance of timeless candor, this generous sense of order, this all-embracing Presence when all the ages become Now…

 Linger with this a little while…

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Trastevere is by far my favorite area of Rome. And I would second your comment on Santa Maria. It’s warm, welcoming and exquisite.
