I pray that darkness may not rule my sight,
That worldly wealth not govern nor delight:
A single eye to see a single thing,
A single heart that serves a single King.
Why not shut down all social media accounts and go only with online presence via websites? The thought pummels the mind, dares the will to decide. The act would achieve simplicity in this area. There are people who have done this and survived. Would it hurt outreach, or focus it? Maybe consider starting a webring. There’s an open-source option. Would have to find someone who knows how to use the command line in order to do it. Some days you just want to get away from it all.
Here’s one for you: A course on “Centering Prayer as Purification, Illumination, Union.”
“we will focus on how the practice of Centering Prayer serves as a doorway into a process that involves a downward movement into one’s inmost being to what’s blocking the free flow of grace and a rising movement of the influence of the Divine Indwelling within, which awakens an awareness of the immense love and goodness that is at the heart of all creation. Ultimately, this results in the transformation of our entire being.”
Does anybody understand this?! (It’s too deep for me.) And only for $79.95!
When the simple life of the gospel is preserved and kept from getting complicated, the work of entrusting the sacred testimony to faithful men continues to be a simple process.
“and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” 2 Tim 2.2 ESV.
I just realized why I seldom finish prayers written on a website I follow. The author often has many good thoughts, but I seem to get lost in the prayer. My mind wanders away, so that I don’t finish reading the post. I noticed that he has run-on sentences. He often fails to punctuate them properly. Commas are needed. Dependent clauses sometimes fail to connect to the main verb. It makes me more determined to write simply. I’d rather risk being choppy than hard to understand. What do you think?
Wear the same thing every day? I’m ready to try it. A friend does it. The question is what to pick out as my standard shirt and pants.
