Love does not apologize. Or make mistakes. Jesus never said, “I’m sorry.”
Life is a play about love. We are currently watching what happens when love is thwarted, repressed, personalized, nationalized, militarized. When love is turned in on itself, when it becomes selfishness, it explodes.
A quiet mind is not an end in itself. It clears the stage.
Conventional wisdom tells us that Life is a serious business. I remember one man telling me he had taught his three boys the value of a dollar. Therein a good illustration of why sons tend not to turn to their fathers for spiritual direction.
