¿QUIÉN DIJO QUE LA VIDA ERA FÁCIL?

Avanzar en medio de la lluvia

Icono noche, lluvia, tiempo

Acá en Costa Rica las lluvias inician por el mes de mayo. Estaba viendo por una ventana una hormiga que con mucho esfuerzo llevaba una hoja a cuestas. Para variar grandes gotas, de ésas que duelen, empezaron a caer y a complicar el panorama. La pequeña hormiga no se amedrentó y continuaba su camino. La incesante lluvia arreciaba y para complicar las cosas aún mas, un tronco se interpuso en el camino y aquel pequeño insecto luchaba por cargar la gran hoja y pasarla por encima de ese obstáculo.

Extrañamente otras hormigas pasaban a su lado sin siquiera inmutarse por las penurias que su amiga, su hermana estaba pasando. Varias veces la hoja se le cayó y la muy testaruda la levantaba, hasta que en medio de aquella lluvia y esas gotas, que para estos insectos son verdaderas bombas mortales, la hormiga logró sacar a cuestas su tarea y llevar le valiosa carga al hormiguero, esa carga que sería alimento para muchos.

¿Acaso es Dios malo mis hermanas y hermanos? ¿Acaso Dios es cruel y se deleita en ver como las criaturas deben esforzarse tanto? No. Simplemente la respuesta radica en que siempre y bajo todas las circunstancias debemos entregar todo, a pesar de las incesantes luchas, los golpes, las necesidades, no podemos simplemente echarnos a morir o esperar a que alguien nos saque de nuestro apuro.

No imagino a estas hormigas reclamando a Dios por lo “difícil” de la tarea. No imagino a las hormigas en rebeldía contra Dios solo por no hacerles la vida más fácil. Quien quiera seguirme que tome su cruz y me siga dijo el mismo Señor Jesús. Sin embargo vivimos en una época donde se nos quiere decir que si cuesta, si es difícil, si no es cómodo, si no hacemos el mínimo esfuerzo se están aprovechando de nosotros.

Ciertamente la vida puede tener comodidades, pero la fe es un camino empedrado lleno de dificultades y obstáculos. La buena batalla la llamó San Pablo. Así que recordemos que si una hormiga que trabaja incesante y sin temor puede hacerlo, cuanto más nosotros, hechos a imagen y semejanza de Dios.

Un día, que puede parecer cualquiera, podrá terminar por ser el primero. El primero del resto de tu vida. Un día llegará la muerte o el amor. Un día llegará la lluvia y va a ser algo más que lluvia, llegará la lluvia y será romance o tristeza.

Nadie dice que sea fácil, es tan solo que es hermosa. Pero hay veces que no parece. Que la luz se oculta entre las nubes y luego esas nubes parecen rocas grises. Que el viento se detiene y ya no mece las hojas y el mar se aquieta, como su hubiese perecido. Parece que todo se ha detenido y no volverá a andar.

Hasta que un día vuelve la llovizna, el cielo grisáceo acaricia las copas de los árboles y vuelve mojando la tierra. Amanece, las aves vuelven a cantar, la luz que se filtra entre las hojas te toca. La luz descubre un camino en medio de la desesperanza.

Porque la vida está plagada de caminos, todos van al mismo lugar y sin embargo, parecen muy distintos. Caminos y caminantes son uno mismo, siempre son lo mismo. 

La vida y los caminos se entremezclan y solo es real la vida cuando se siente el pie hundiéndose en la tierra, cuando se tiene dirección y sentido y se vive con el compromiso de seguir el camino de la vida.

En la vida solo hay que cuidarse de quienes roban vida, quienes juzgan caminos y niegan caminantes. Tan solo son mentiras. Es que la mentira entre los humanos hay veces que se apodera de la vida. Pero nada es, ni nada son. Cada vida es un camino donde se debe conocer cada paso, el recorrido y el fin de la marcha.

La vida da, solo da y no pide sino ser vivida. Ahí está su valor y costo: en vivir.

La vida no es fácil; es compleja. La vida resulta de lo que se hace de ella. De ahí nace su riqueza. La vida es única, unicidad, inconfundible, inalienable. La vida es plena, es la verdad manifiesta. La vida es lo propio, como el respirar, como la mirada, como el escuchar y la palabra. La vida toca y acaricia los sentidos, la vida se plasma entre las venas, entre las manos, en el rostro, se dibuja en la mirada que toca el alma.

La vida se contiene, es una gran esfera donde se hace a sí misma, se hace perfecta porque perfecta es su creación. La vida es perfecta en sus diferentes tonalidades, sabores, gustos. La vida es una multitud de colores que no dejan de ser uno color cuando se sabe que sólo hay una vida, después de todo.
