WORDS LIKE LIGHT
Thursday, September 16, 2021
What can lighten any day for me is the realization that the most precious powers in life are invincible. Something as simple as kindness, for instance, is absolutely indestructible. Nothing – no ‘thing’, no material supposed power – can even slightly weaken the power of kindness, consideration, and helpfulness to create peace in my life and the lives around me. And gentleness – what hardness or meanness can make gentleness wither away? And the power of patience – even the worst disaster bows in humble subservience to patience, which simply stays where it always is with quietness and confidence. And, of course, love. Whenever I let love loose in my life, it spreads like a soft, unassailable ocean, unfailingly flowing over any seeming obstacle.
How lucky can an old fellow get!
TELL ME Tell me why a gray day can give me wisdom. Tell me how happiness can drive down my street at the last possible second. Show me silence and how it speaks. Show me the inside of sincerity and kindness so I can stay there. Tell me about the rolling world, and the stars that sigh above us. Give me truth to be beside me.
