It’s not about you, but, on the other hand, it’s all about you.
Life is about God, but life is all about how we, ourselves, interact with God.
Life is in the giving to others, but life is also about receiving from God so that we may be enabled to give to others.
We all have incredible gifts, but those same gifts, pushed too far, are a scourge and our downfall.
You are dark. I am dark. The darkness we notice about others highlights the secret darkness resident in ourselves. The more we bear and resolve our darkness, the more light shines upon us. You and I. We both need God.
We may become masters at what we do, but we never break clear of the schoolyard.
We get old and those whose bottoms we wiped become the wipers of our mouths.
It’s fine to get angry for the right reason, but we quickly find we’re in the wrong as we respond in that anger.
Innocence works well in life until that moment we’re wrongly accused and we’re castigated even more for protesting our innocence.
We eat what we want when we’re young, and get away with it. We watch what we eat when we’re older, yet struggle with our weight.
When we’re at the top of our game we are proudest of all, and what’s more, we get away with it. Arrogance has its place. But when we’re on the way down there’s no tolerance for the tiniest conceit.
Life is an enigma in the contrasts.
