a few thoughts i’ve had stewing.

setting my intention: every morning, i’ve been declaring my intentions for the day. not so much a “to-do list”, but more of setting the tone. as of late, i’ve been focused on respecting all life, and treating every breathing thing with the tenderness i would appreciate all breathing things to treat me with. i’ve noticed a marked difference in my response to things like red sharpie all over the fridge, a skein of yarn cut up, you know, things children do out of curiosity. i’ve actually been thankful for these opportunities, so i can test out my new found patience. i keep thinking it’s a fluke, it’s so hard to have faith in oneself.

academia: a few quotes. i think everyone knows where i stand on the subject 🙂

“but it is inherent in scholastic thinking that something written down has a greater validity than something said or experienced.” – idries shah

“if you want to get laid, go to college. if you want an education, go to the library.” – frank zappa


wealth and abundance: always a struggle, but it’s really been not sitting well with my being the last few days. how on earth can followers of christ have anything other than contentment and joy in the now? i’ve read and heard so many greedy christians lately, and it confuses me. i truly believe that the wealth and abundance talked about in the bible has absolutely nothing to do with material things and possessions, and everything to do with love and relationships. you cannot serve both god and mammon! i think mewithoutyou says it best:

“if i come without a thing, i’ve come with all i need.”
