Question: What good shall I do and did today

Three thing I will change on this schedule:

  1. Wake up at 6 am
  2. Change “shall I do” to “I will do”
  3. Sleep at 11 pm


Find the good on a given situation.  Sounds like Pollyanna?  Not really, it’s easier to become pessimistic than being optimistic.  No should or could or would.  These are pitfalls in everyday life.  Do or do not.  The daily examination, I agree with this wholeheartedly.  It reminds me of the quote “unexamined life is not worth living.”

At-one-ment

When a man whose marriage was in trouble sought his advice, the Master said, “You must learn to listen to your wife.”

The man took this advice to heart and returned after a month to say that he had learned to listen to every word his wife was saying.

Said the Master with a smile, “Now go home and listen to every word she isn’t saying.”

~ Anthony de Mello, SJ
