The spiritual quest
is the search for what matters--
across time.

The foundation of knowing
is emptiness/stillness/silence,
avoiding noise/complexity/drama.

What matters is 
emptiness/stillness/silence.

What doesn't matter is
noise/complexity/drama.

How much emptiness/stillness/silence
is in your life?

How much noise/complexity/drama
is in your life?

With noise/complexity/drama come
distraction/diversion/interference.

Instead of advising medication to control
ADHD Syndrome,
why don't they just say,
"You have too f-ing much that doesn't matter in your life!
Start shutting doors!"?

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.
