When the world outside has seemingly gone mad, it is time to go within. How can there be peace “out there” if we don’t have peace in our hearts?
Turn off the PROGRAM and tune into nature. For me it’s the easiest way to reconnect with truth. The truth is, there is still so much good and beauty in this world and it’s worth fighting for.
The not-so-secret is the battle is a spiritual one.
“I think this is when most people give up on their stories. They come out of college wanting to change the world, wanting to get married, wanting to have kids and change the way people buy office supplies. But they get into the middle and discover it was harder than they thought. They can’t see the distant shore anymore and they wonder if their paddling is moving them forward. None of the trees behind them are getting any smaller and none of the trees ahead are getting bigger … and they go looking for an easier story.”
“Once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.“
–Donald Miller, “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years”
