Destroyed

012

 

“These things

will destroy the human race:

politics without principle,

progress without compassion,

wealth without work,

learning without silence,

religion without fearlessness

and worship without awareness.”

.

Anthony de Mello, SJ

.

I do not know if it is the cynic in me

or just old age realism, but,

having been raised in the middle of the last century,

I perceive that the world has begun

the downward slippery slide towards destruction.

Everyone worships some things,

hopefully those things are peace of mind,

love of life and God.

Today, let us all pray and do our best to

reverse the downward trend.

Life is not to be taken for granted.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.

Awareness

.

.

Let us not

look back in anger,

nor forward in fear,

but around in

awareness.”

What was, was, and what will be, will be,

and the only thing I can react to is:

the here and now.

If you are aware of mean, ugly and nasty, move on.

If you are aware of kindness, love and happiness,

hang around and see what you can contribute to the festivities.

Today, know that your Higher Power will give you the chance,

the choice is yours.

Life is having an awareness of the here and now.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
