Life is a spiritual gamble

This is so unbelievably massive that it’s an optical illusion, looking smaller as a photo. What is it? The Continental Divide.

Life is a spiritual gamble.

Hey Jeff, we’re all going to die, so what is the risk?

The risk is that you never come alive.

The risk is that you never walk with peace and contentment.

The risk is that you teach your children to follow your path.

Insight: Regret sucks.

Thin places

two youthful couples at Walt Disney World
Star Wars – a thin place?

What is a thin place?

A place where Earth and Heaven blur together.

You can’t distinguish one from the other.

Maybe a stunning beach sunset.

Maybe an unexpected, random act of kindness bestowed on you.

Maybe a cure for something previously incurable.

Experience vs knowledge

quote about the devil
Apathy is the devil’s gold medal. Most adults have no idea they’ve become apathetic. And if they are aware, their rut is too deep to climb out of. But you, you know this and avoid it like the plague.

Experience vs knowledge.

Talking recently about pontificators versus practitioners.

Let’s use military war in this example.

Russia just invaded Ukraine.

There are history “experts” who write and speak about war.

There are career military soldiers who have fought on the front-lines of multiple wars over decades.

Let’s say the military “scholar/historian” dresses in a suit with cuff links.

Let’s say a 20-30 year military soldier dresses in jeans and a t-shirt.

Who knows more about war?

Zealot’s do not budge

child watering flowers
This $2.00 K-Mart (remember K-Mart) poster reflects the vision i had of our home long before we became parents.

The classic zealot move is the move where you refuse to budge, refusing to accept any other view than your “etched in stone” view.

Can you imagine?

Of course.

Another classic zealot characteristic is believing you have no blind spots.

We clearly see the plank in other’s eye, yet we deny the plank in our eye.

This is bad news for all us us, trying to imagine our blindspots.

We all have blindspots.

The good news, you are in charge of the things you can control. You can over-focus on uncovering the truth about your blindspots. It may take a lifetime.

You are also in charge of completely letting go of the things you cannot control.

How cool is that?
