Great Video

What a great message. So much of our time we hear a different message, one that calls us to succeed in ways that are measured by the size of our bank account or the power and prestige we manage to accumulate. Even if we already know what's really important, its so important to be reminded.

the import of beauty

These words are beautiful, and there's a profound conundrum here and I will keep beating that drum, though on line, here, on Aish, I have no real idea if anyone ever read anything I wrote. The question is: God doesn't need to ask these questions because God already knows and the curve ball in this, is that God wrote not parts of the entire story. That's what we mean by Divine Providence. That is how and why, what is emergent from the soup mix, this chicken soup for the soul, is paradox. I know, there has to be a learning curve built into a determinism, because I do know, the coincidences that do ring this small life, are off the charts, and truly the off Broadway, Hit Parade. I took a road and it took me to this place at this time, and there was no knowledge, really, except for these glowing "intimations" that the path was mine to follow as I did follow, the path. The path in empathy itself, and I have no doubt many others are on the same path, the road to compassion, the compass within the very word, our True North.
