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?
We are not here to get anything
out of being here.
The profit motive is the original sin.
get in the way.
In the way of The Way.
The Way is all there is.
Babies have it,
toddlers know it,
then comes wanting,
All there is--
all there ever is--
and what needs to be done,
where and how.
What needs to be done
for the sake of the good of the whole,
for the sake of what needs doing--
not for the sake of our personal
benefit, profit and gain.
empty of all motives/fear/anger/desire/etc.
until what needs doing
Then, sit still,
It will transform your life
and rearrange the world.
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.
