Deliver Us From Evil

The lesson to be learned is that the reality of evil does not incapacitate us, rather it defines us. The contrast between what is, and what we believe in, is the trail of our "heroic journey." The way is marked for us by that which moves us. Can't stand arrogance? Stay humble. Abhor injustice? Be fair. Cringe and avoid liars? Tell the truth. Detest bullies? Stand up to them. Love a forgiving nature? Pardon. Touched by compassion? Be empathic. Believe in self-sacrifice? Flip the "m" in me upside down to become we. (see the last paragraph in "Perspective" of the God section of the web site)

In the post Thy Kingdom Come (5-16-13) I stated that if you were reading that post you had been called. Selected. Appointed. Anointed. I wasn't kidding. You are the one we have been waiting for.

We Must Say Yes

If you haven't had the pleasure of reading or viewing Joseph Campbell, you are in for a wonderful treat. This link of 25 minutes and 46 seconds has a staggering number of insights available for your discernment. If you are of the Christian, Jewish, or Islamic faith, I would ask you to employ your "intellectual curiosity." If, after a fair hearing, you wish to dismiss the ideas outright, so be it. I do not ask you to believe, only to entertain the possibilities presented.

Something to Celebrate

This is the way it begins. As I said in the post of 5-16-13 (Thy Kingdom Come) we know what to do. And it is simple. It is just a matter of doing it.

A smile, a gesture, a moment of your time. This is how we change the world.

Update 7-23-13 Additional evidence that we can do it...
