Fear of Death

Photo Leander Syrieix

Death frightens me; it paralyzes me so much that I do not dare sometimes visit relatives or acquaintances who are preparing to experience it. I have heard that it is by death that we meet you face-to-face Lord. Is it perhaps because of this slogan that death scares me so much?

I finally realize that I have so far rationalized the issue of death, that I have taken refuge behind beautiful formulas to escape and avoid this undeniable reality.

But what makes me so afraid of death? Is it all the wounds of my life like abandonment, denial, the experience of rejection in many forms, etc.? Is it because of so much harm during my life? Is it because of so much evil of which I was the author? Is it for fear of being forgotten from my relatives and people I have known? Or, is it for fear of my vision of the afterlife, for fear of being in solitude and wandering forever? Read more

Amo Ergo Sum

Since I met you, I no longer imagine my life without You. Yet I sometimes get away from You, to forget you for a few moments. When this happens to me, I become more aware of the solid bond that unites us.

With You I share my existence, not because I am sickly dependent, but because of the reciprocal Love that dwells in us. My breathing is nothing more than our Love. How can I stop loving you? Indeed, it would assume that I no longer live to the extent that the absence of breathing is synonymous with the absence of life, that is to say, death with regard to our human conception.

The Love that binds us keeps me alive. But how can I explain the fact that I often forget you during a day in the tumult of my occupations? I am only aware of it when we converse so before I fall asleep, so when I make personal reading of my day. Obviously, forgetting at certain moments of my day reflects my imperfection, the mystery of what “I love you” although I am not entirely present to You. Read more

Lord, in your hands…

© Leander Syrieix.

Lord, in your hands I commit my heart that burns with Love for you so that you may use it to burn the world with your fire.

Lord, in your hands I commit mine that burn with impatience to offer themselves so that you may use it to embrace the world.

Lord, in your hands I put my legs that burn with impatience to travel the universe, so that you may use it to go to meet the world.

Lord, in your hands I put my eyes sparkling with Love, so that you may use it to turn towards you the look of the world. Read more

Because of a Pierced Rock

On this beautiful morning of July 18, 2016, I find myself on the grounds of the chalets of “Nature Océan[1]” where I enjoy a splendid view on the “Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island[2]“. The sun is at the rendezvous and a small fresh breeze allows me to better appreciate the rays as well as the heat of the morning Gaspesian sun.

The interior and general feeling I have right now is that of gratitude for the wonders that the Trinity makes in our lives. For this unprecedented moment plunges me back into the memories of my two dives of the day before. I see all the life underwater (fauna and flora) that I contemplated, rubbed, taken photograph. I think back to the mystery of creation, to the adaptation of species in their various environments (earth, sea and air). Read more
