No Parking

Who, do you suppose, really wants to park alongside this ramshackle building? And don’t they have larger concerns to worry about? And yet, so many of us expend energy defending ourselves against the remote chance of intruders when we might more profitably give that time and energy to reinforcing our own structural integrity.

What worry might you give up in order to give that energy to your own health and wholeness?

Sunset

One of the most beautiful moments of the day comes as the sun goes down, and the light is lost. We know the dark is coming, but for this brief time the sky is at its most glorious.

When have you found beauty in the presence of loss?

It Still Works

Sure, there are fancier, faster machines out there, but this aged tractor can still get the job done. While it’s easy to love smart phones and wi-fi and all the latest gadgets, much of the fertility of our lives comes from wisdom handed down to us from people who managed without the benefit of our contemporary marvels.

What bit of wisdom do you cherish from a person who lived in an earlier age?

Picking Up Trash

Wouldn’t it be great if each of our lives came equipped with a truck with a giant suction hose to suck up the garbage that collects around us and ship it out of town? Resentments—slurp! Fretting over things we can’t change—slurp!  Petty frustrations—slurp! And off they would go, leaving clean streets for us to drive down.

What would you like this spiritual garbage truck to vacuum up and take away from your life?
