|As darkness descends over London, my Cathay Pacific Boeing 747 climbs steeply through the cloudless night sky on its long haul home to Perth.
The clear and present danger of someone blowing themself up at any time in Britain grips many here with fear and uncertainty.
I am leaving this place and returning to the so-called ‘safe haven’ of Australia; but is there actual shelter anywhere in this dangerous world?
“May there be good fortune throughout the universe, and may all envious persons be pacified. May all living entities become calm by practicing bhakti-yoga, for by accepting devotional service they will think of each other’s welfare. Therefore let us all engage in the service of the supreme transcendence, Lord Sri Krishna, and always remain absorbed in thought of Him.”- Bhagavata Purana
Goodnight London, and farewell.
