Dreams and Revelation
A Dream, A Revelation...
As I was dreaming earlier this week my mind was occupied by St. Teresa's thoughts/writings about the three criteria for "interior matters" (i.e. contemplation). I slept so deeply (I usually do now) and I did not snore; well, for that matter I never snore; right Kate? I cannot hear what you are saying, Kate, my love!
When I awoke it was perfectly clear yet really not that sensational. It was clearly simple; although I cannot take credit for this thesis/wisdom...
Our battle is with selfishness on all/many levels (personal, community, country, global...). Perhaps we should focus on teaching our children about how critical this is, and how destructive attachment/selfishness is. Perhaps then we could reverse our destructive course. I know this is no exceptional revelation; however, its importance should not be underestimated/trivialized. Is there a link here to the demise of so many; perhaps, Mariyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson...Please be advised, in no way am I suggesting that these icons were selfish; it is not that simple...They may perhaps be the victims or it is a combination...What say you?
