Life Giving Advice

31 Jan

Today I need not to think of these
pandemic days as depravation
and empty time…

Today I need not to hope for my
side to win at the expense of
the other side…

Today I need not to think in terms
of them versus us…

Today I need not to let my mind
be filled with name-calling,
resentment and anger…

And there is only one way to
make all of this happen…

Today I need to let my mind
remember ancient words that
invite me into a different world…
“focus your thoughts on all that is true,
all that is holy, all that is just, and all
that is pure, all that is lovely, and all
that is worthy of praise. Think on
these things…”

Life-giving advice.
