THE TALE OF AN AMERICAN CHILD

One day, the mother of an American child called her child and told to the child:

– From now on my boyfriend is your father.

The child answered naturally and promptly:

– But, mom, dad is the dad, why your boyfriend is my dad?

The mother answered back furiously:

– You shut up! Your father is the biological father and my boyfriend is your father, O. K. ?

The child has silent.

And, round and salty tears rolled on the child’s cheeks.

The child has silent…

… the vault of crystal,/

azure of autumn … a sparrow/

there, dead in the grass…”

POVESTEA UNUI COPIL AMERICAN

Intr-o buna zi, mama unui copil american si-a chemat copilul si i-a spus:

– De azi inainte prietenul meu este tatal tau.

Copilul a intrebat firesc si prompt:

– Dar mama, tata este tata, iar prietenul tau de ce este tatal meu?

Mama i-a raspuns furioasa:

– Tu sa taci! Tatal tau este tatal biologic, iar prietenul meu este tatal tau, e clar?

Copilul a tacut.

Si, lacrimile rotunde, sarate s-au rostogolit pe obrajii sai de copil…

Copilul a tacut…

… bolta de clestar,/

azur toamna … si vrabia/

moarta in iarba…”

SATAN

In the diversity of his existence Satan is almost infinite.

Only God is infinite and good.

Thus the most effective way of tempting Satan to come upon you and to live in you is to tell:

The evil is only what I can imagine about evil. And the man can imagine everything!”

Because this “almost infinite” which define Satan’s existential diversity as been yet limited, it might (but it is not at all sure!) only historically to define the humanity’s capacity in imagining the evil, but in no case, and I emphasizes, in no case, it not defines correctly the individual power/capacity of imagining the evil.

Always the mind of a single man can imagine the evil (under all accessible to his imagination shapes, even the “good” shape of the evil) till the limit where the evil turns against himself or the ones he loves.

Beyond this limit he have always desperately searched God.

Some have found Him, in the end.

Some haven’t.

Thus, always the unimaginable evil becomes exactly the evil considered perfectly imaginable.

And any perfectly imaginable evil contains – for certain – the seed of the “calling of Satan”.

That is the reason I remind you, dear reader, Lord Jesus Christ’s words:

Man does not live on bread alone. But with God’s words too.

Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.

Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”

(Luke, “The Temptation of Jesus” 4 / 4, 8, 12)

… the twilight in this/

November …, a lonely star…/

a child is crying…”

SATAN

In diversitatea existentei sale, Satan este aproape infinit, doar Dumnezeu fiind infinit si bun.

Astfel, cel mai strasnic mod de a-l ispiti pe Satan sa vina asupra ta si sa te locuiasca, este acela de a-ti spune:

Raul nu este decit ce-mi pot imagina eu despre rau. Iar omul isi poate imagina orice !” Fiindca acest “aproape infinit ” care defineste diversitatea existentei lui Satan ca fiind totusi limitata, s-ar putea( insa nu e deloc sigur! ) sa defineasca doar istoric capacitatea omenirii de a imagina raul, dar in nici un caz, subliniez, in nici un caz nu defineste corect puterea /capacitatea individuala de a imagina raul.

Intotdeauna mintea unui singur om a imaginat raul (sub mai toate formele accesibile imaginatiei lui, chiar si forma de “bine” a raului) pina la limita acelui rau indreptat impotriva sa insusi si impotriva celor care constituie obiectul dragostei sale.

Dincolo de aceasta limita, intotdeauna L-a cautat disperat pe Dumnezeu.

Unii L-au gasit, pina la urma.

Altii, nu.

Asadar, intotdeauna devine inimaginabil de rau, acel rau pe care-l consideram perfect imaginabil.

Si orice rau perfect imaginabil contine in el – cu certitudine – saminta “chemarii lui Satan”.

De aceea iti reamintesc cititorule cuvintele Domnului Iisus Christos:

Omul nu va trai numai cu piine, ci cu orice cuvint al Lui Dumnezeu.

Sa te inchini numai Domnului Dumnezeului tau si numai Lui sa-I slujesti.

Sa nu ispitesti pe Domnul Dumnezeul tau!

(Luca, “Ispitirea Lui Iisus Christos” 4 / 4, 8, 12)

“ … crepuscul in acest/

noiembrie si, o stea…/

un copil plinge…”

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)
