Early this morning, I read a bold statement that caused me to set my coffee cup down:
“All who are willing to snatch time from the greedy material world to devote it instead to the divine search can learn to behold the wondrous factory of creation out of which all things are born.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
I looked up to see stars reflecting in the water. Okay, so it’s not a pleasant thought, but you know, eventually our bodies will fall painfully apart and we will be escorted off this earth. That’s a given.
So back to my coffee. Marion, how much precious time do you waste chasing temporary happiness in the form of food, money, gratification of the body, useless diversions and attachments to material stuff?
There’s no escaping the inner work I have yet to accomplish. And something tells me I have miles to go before I sleep…
