The more clearly I see this world system, through the practice of critical thought, the less and less impressed I am. The more and more my heart, mind and soul is healed and opened up by the love of the Creator for that which he has created the harder it becomes for myself to find many things to be proud of as far as what humanity has given us in the mad dash of survival. But here is where we find ourselves called to live everyday. Systemic problems are created by the systems the fallen mind conjures up and I'm just not interested anymore in wasting my time thinking up and fighting for new improved system of any kind...political, economic, social, or religious.
Love is the only thing that can set us free and help us learn to remain free as we live within these oppressive systems that we are surrounded by and yet at the same time not be of them. Help us Lord to do this.
