We cannot change our mind
about what is important.
Our mind has a mind of its own.
Our mind will change itself
about what is important
when the time comes.

Until then, we wait
and watch
in the right kind of emptiness,
stillness and silence,
in order to know the time
of realization
when it comes upon us
out of the blue.

Om mani padme hum...

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
