1882 – the first stones, the foundations were laid down for this church, in the hopes that it will become a place of worship that is open to everyone. The church is not yet finished. It only has a hope of being finished, perhaps in 2026. So yes… it is still unfinished in 2021.
I guess the history of most churches in earlier history was that many of them took years to be completed, some centuries, some would be built then destroyed, then build again and so the cycle went.
What does an unfinished building have to do with you, and to do with your sense of self?!
If you have to ask that question, then you are the very person who perhaps needs to do some introspection.
Do you feel you are completed?
Do you feel you have learnt everything there is to be learned about you?
Do you feel like all the arches, all the walls, all the windows, all levels have been completed about yourself?
Do you have a good foundation?
Can you build more on top of it?
Have you renovated your inner world lately?
Have you spring-cleaned those cobwebs?
Have you washed the windows of your soul?
Have you cleared your closet of all those skeletons?
Are the monsters still under your bed?
Have you buried the memories with compassion, love, and acceptance?
Have you let the light in as of late?
Is the sun shining through the windows of your soul?
Have you tended the garden of your emotions?
Have you plucked out the weeds, the things you no longer need?
Have you replanted those patches that have been burned within your heart?
Are you able to see the architecture, the plans?
Have you spoken to the structural engineer as of late?
What happened with all those collapsed dreams, those failed attempts at building a future – have you cleaned them up, reenforced the structures, re-directed the pipelines; so, they don’t burst?
We may be a human being, but just like a building, the structures, the foundations, the individual parts of us need to fit together just right in order for us to be able to enjoy US to its fullest. Recognise the surrounding colours, be able to feel all the emotions to their fullest, be able to think and feel at the same time.
If our metaphorical building inside is a collapsed old rickety shack, are we likely to hear the full spectrum of the tones in this world, can we taste the food to its most minute flavour, can we see the full spectrum of colours?
I am unfinished for sure, are you?
