REVERENCE



"Man is his own most vexing problem." ~ Reinhold Niebuhr

 I think about this often, in a variety of contexts.

 I've landed here at this time in my life.....

 Most of the vexing problems I do believe are the result of us falling out of touch with the most appropriate way we humans should dwell on this earth. And what might that be?

 With reverence.

 But we don't because we get caught up in the competitive game of acquisition and achievement and comparison. We were duped into thinking that is how we progress as humans. I think it malforms us and that causes an amnesia to settle in on us in regards to what it really means to be human...and what being here could really be like.
