leonard oprea: the gift / a breathing to tammy corson







leonard oprea



Neither for you, nor for me, for no one the life is rightful to have it.

Life is a gift. Yes – a truism…

Still, don’t forget ever: …God’s gift for you, for me…

You can love it and to thank for it. You can hate it and to reject it.

God’s gift of life is granted simultaneously together with the Free Will. Always.

Yet: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that,

whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3; 16)

And, his only Son is the Son of Man – as well, remember this?

Therefore, do not misunderstand: God is God.

Thus, the American dream is today, the irrefutable Coca-cola global-reality.

“In God we trust” – implacably is today a dusty slogan on the dollar bills …

And the life is …God’s gift for you, for me… You can love it and to thank for it.

You can hate it and to reject it.

The third millennium will be Christian or will be not.

 “… night of August – see?

… myriad stars; the crickets…

…hear? what a quiet peace…”

(from „Theophil Magus – Living in America” // Copyright © 2010 by Leonard Oprea. All rights reserved. Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, an original type of essay in Romanian and world literature.The Breathing is a short, simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 2006”, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
