Weather vanes are common place here on the Cape, as evidenced by this sailboat atop a house here in Osterville. Many people are wondering, on this Sunday morning, where the nation is heading. As jobs vanish across the midlands due to the significant drop in manufacturing and industries that were once a large chunk of our GDP, one could ponder, is it the system or market that is failing us, or our insatiable desire for more? How much is enough? We have enough food to feed the people of the world, but that priority is lost on Madison Avenue. As people pull together in these tough times, realize this–nothing can replace LOVE, for it was never lost. Have you ever noticed that love never, ever attacks? There was a man who walked the earth over 2000 years ago and we all know his name. He spoke of the same solutions then, to the problems of the ancient civilizations that reflect NOW. I challenge you to find one voice that was louder, without having to shout, one voice that was more compassionate to the “human condition”, one voice that spoke of forgiveness and kindness and above all love. Love for thy SELF and thy neighbor, for in the end we are our neighbor, we are all one. The material world is a thought that someone created, collectively over the centuries, and somehow we all believe that it is real…when the deeper part of our selves, KNOWS the TRUTH. The next time you are annoyed at something, perhaps even this blog, ask yourself one question, “what would Love do?” Peace M
