Crucify Him

Why would anyone choose the mob? Because it is an easy way out. It’s for the person that doesn’t want to make an effort in their life. It is for the person that is entirely content with being absolutely ordinary.

Having spirituality of any kind is an excellent signpost for how one should live their life, but even if spirituality was absent from one's life, it should be clear that the treatment of people should be done in the same way in which one would want to be treated.

3 Minutes

Take 3 minutes out of your busy day and listen to the always wonderful Alan Watts talk about choice and making decisions. I truly enjoy the way Mr. Watts speaks to his audience.

I've been thinking about this for months and months, ever since I read Ronald Rohleiser's book: The Holy Longing.
