Rambling thoughts from many years past:
There are far, far too many children with cancer and other serious diseases in our world. Far too many young adults dying with “old people” diseases:
“There are far, far too many chemicals, poisons, drugs, in our water and food”
There is far, far too much hatred one for the other in our world. Far too much war and atrocities being committed by humans against other humans:
“Hate is not a hereditary quality, but a learned behavior”
There is far, far too much torture of our planet going on. Forests are disappearing, oceans are polluted, the air is filled with noxious smoke, the earth itself is being drilled into incessantly, pumped full of hot water and steam in order to choke out a gallon of black goo…:
“When the Earth dies, all humans will also die. As far as I know there are no outposts on Mars”
There are far, far too few children learning to put a pencil to a piece of paper and write:
“When the plug is pulled, how will knowledge be communicated?”
I used to be able to pull my car in my Grandfather’s yard and do just about anything to it which needed doing to make it run. I changed points and plugs, solenoid switches and alternators, starters, rings and pistons. Now when I open the hood of my car all I see are computer plug ins. The one thing I recognize is the battery.
I used to check books out of the library to read, or go to one of the numerous used book stores to buy a book to read, or to trade for one. Now, I buy a “book” online and they send a few bytes of information on the internet and I read it on an electronic pad. I still own lots and lots of physical books though…including a lot of instruction manuals and textbooks.
There are far, far too many people who think their God lives inside a big brick building:
“If you make room in your heart, God will be there. If God is in your heart, you have made room” You will know, there won’t be any doubt.
