we're barking up the wrong tree." says Joseph Campbell.
"The world is perfect.
It's a mess.
It has always been a mess.
We are not going to change it.
Our job is to straighten out our own lives.”
A super-abundant, glorious, generous mess.
A mess that invites you to dive right in and participate.
But participation brings with it responsibilities.
We are stewards of this world.
We cannot bring order to its mess through abuse of power or resources.
We cannot legislate or coerce a change of heart..
We can only change our own actions, our own attitudes, our own commitment.
May we bless this mess with our heart and soul and body.
