Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
Balance and harmony
position us to respond appropriately
to each situation as it arises.
Finding the center,
being grounded firmly
to the Anchor Stone,
seeing what's what
and what needs to be done
serve the cause of balance and harmony,
and make for peace.
We have to live out of our own heart,
in touch with the heart of the matter.
Aware of our own contradictions,
transparent to ourselves
within each situation as it arises,
and allowing our response
to arise as well
from our integrity and sincerity,
what we are going to do
until we find ourselves doing it.
Too much thinking about balance and harmony
leads to imbalance and disharmony.
"Just get in there and do your thing,
and don't worry about the outcome!"
-- Joseph Campbell
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.
