Leaving Lund

Many students are leaving Lund these days to go to other cities or countries. Coming and going make part of our world, to connect and to leave behind. Everything has its time and that is how we can orient ourselves in the world and in life.
Lund is not Nairobi, and everyone knows that. But to widen the perspectiv a bit: to eat and to read are different activities and has each one its place. Sunday has it´s ways and Monday has others. Christmas is one thing and Easter another, being with friends are not compatible with writing sms all the time.
So when leaving Lund – leave and embrace the life at the place to which you go. Leave and rembember! Remembering is our faculty to integrate experiences, to be part of in another way. Then I can live more fully with all what I have lived.
Today often facebook or other means of communication seem to be the solution of connecting with what is not here and now. But the memory has greater qualities – if it´s cultivatied it deepens the experience.  The memory even accomplishes the past, it processes what I really lived once in Lund when some time has past.
Leave and remember! Remember what happend, the people you met. Rembember and cultivate you gratitude for what was given – and the pain of what was not. All those things are included in our path with God. Through remembering I can discern how God acted with me. No means of communication can do that!

And return to Lund if it is of interest to you, always welcome! yours br Björn

Really many people will leave Lund, for good, or for a semester. We´ve had a year of renewal I Think, which is a good thing. I´ll come back to that later,
