It’s good to be re-minded of this starting-block truth: We are not in control of what happens. All we can control is our response to what happens. We are response-able to that extent.
Comfort and security do not change a man. Only adversity can do that. We are hallowed and habilitated in difficult times.
It’s the one thing we have in common—we’re all passing away. “Tomorrow you will go away, or I shall, and never shall we see one another again.”
If I do not know who I am, I’ll be exploited by rascals.
The further down the path we go, the quieter it gets. Being waxes, doing wanes.
