Do not seek to follow the footsteps of the men of the old; seek what they sought

If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.

We are so obsessed with doing
that we have no time
and no imagination left for being.
As a result, men are valued
not for what they are
but for what they do
or what they have
- for their usefulness.

When life is blessed, its perfect.

But my soul is hidden and invisible. I cannot see it directly,for it is hidden even from myself. Nor can I see my own eyes. They are too close for me to see them. They are not meant to see themselves. I know I have eyes when I see other things with them.
~ Philosopher Thomas Merton, “No Man Is an Island“
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. It comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.
