Jet in the sky
Cloud watching after lunch. Clouds are the epitome of silence.

Sometimes you realize the harsh reality is that nothing you say will make a difference.

Find strength in silence. And in God.

Fight this battle until the death

Being out numbered has pros and cons – we need to decide which


Each morning, taking personal time to reflect, pray, read, write, plan. These are all weapons against apathy.

And yes, I’m acutely aware of the degree of difficulty.

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. – Buddha

Sharpen our knives, clean our rifles, and check our provisions, while the enemy rests.

Life is meant to be lived on the offensive.

How solid is your definition of self-control?

Life's real battle is with the man in the mirror

Humans are powerful creatures. But we are also easily bruised. In order to gain a decent level of self control, I’ve had to work hard to let go of old paradigms, hurts, memories.

I define self control not as complete mastery over self, but as a firm conviction that complete mastery is a possibility. Eventually. And it will take a lifetime. And it may be impossible.

Small Surrenders Make

Peace, the Fruit of Small Surrenders
Peace, the Fruit of Small Surrenders

“Small surrenders make up a stained glass mosaic.” — unknown

As you read this, on this day (Sunday), what comes to mind for you?

There are many possible directions and interpretations.

It reminds me, at first glance, the daily surrender necessary to overcome addiction.

One day at a time.

A small surrender to desire.

And sometimes in one day, there are many small surrenders.

And then tomorrow, begin again.

Repeat until death.
