We Can Do Better

The world needs more mindfulness. We need to be more quiet and more thoughtful. We’ve become too robotic and dull-minded, and we’ve become entertainment junkies.

Everyone needs to have a spiritual life. We need to find contentment within and stop searching for it through the empty promises of clever marketers. We need to think for ourselves, and live a life we’re proud of. One that’s about doing good in the world, rather than the world doing good for us.

We need more honesty, more maturity, and more compassion. We haven’t grown up yet. There’s a lot of good people doing good things and this is a sustaining force in the world, but we’re still far from where we’re capable of being.

Our goal should be to bring heaven a little closer to earth.
