May we live to see the world we would want. Let us not wish it into being, but rather let us live it into being. They say one person cannot change the world, and yet we are, each of us, agents of change every moment. How we choose to Be will have impact and impetus that will ripple out far beyond our immediate sphere of influence. So let us be mindful of how we Are, always with a vision of who we would Become. This is what is meant in living a spiritual life. It is to cultivate the fine arts of compassion, patience, humility, and service. They need not be large acts; their mere presence in small measure will grow exponentially. It is the calculus of Grace. For intentional living, we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
