A Little Wisdom

Richness comes in two flavors. One is the the richness of having. Like the stuff we posses. The second is richness of Being.

Richness of Being does not come through the richness of having.

The Blues

Life is funny sometimes. We come, we go. Making plans and dream dreams.... Where does the time go. I am sitting in a coffee shop in downtown Kamloops having taken a maintenance day. An little rest and perhaps a haircut. And do a little advocacy for a friend in hospital. I must say I am weary. The kind of weary that causes you to wonder.
Blessed be the poor in Spirit.

And The Word became Flesh

I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with every-thing there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, Gods great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else.

The Passing Of Steve Jobs

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Steve Jobs. He really was a marvelous innovator. But I was puzzled by some of the accolades. There where claims he changed the world. But sadly it seems the world is still a complete and utter mess. we are teetering on the brink of social, financial, and ecological disaster. Technology has made great strides forward in the last 50 years. Indeed we have some marvelous gadgets that have the potential to help us make great changes possible but alas we are too busy raping the planet and destroying each other. As long as accumulating money is considered success/wealth we are doomed. I am the 99%. I am debt. I am in bondage calling it freedom. Many are starting to awake and I pray it continues.

Facebook

I have never been a big fan of Facebook but sometimes it can be useful. Yesterday I have a friend from my childhood years in Belleville Ont. Hey Bill good to hear from you! We knew each other as next door neighbours growing up and again as young adults for a short time. It is always interesting to see how the years have played out in the live of the people you have known over the years.

Buying A Tablet

So I decide to pull the trigger and buy a tablet. After a bit of research and trying the Motorola Zoom (it was returned. I decide that the Asus Transformer with the dock is what I am after. A bit more research tells me that they where recently released in the UK and sold out right away. But good news Asus is still going to launch on April 26th in Canada and th US. So I wait..... Launch day comes and I call all the listed suppliers and not one actually has a unit in stock.... hum launch day and no product. So can you really call it a launch day? So I ask all the suppliers when we can expect the units to be available. Not one could answer. And I am told if I want one I need to pay up front and wait 2-3 weeks but no guarantees. Wow that was fun........not!

One More

I received an email today. In it was news that one more of my friends is leaving this world. Three weeks to live. He came to me as a volunteer at the Mission and over the many years has become a good friend. He is a man who always found joy in whatever he did. It has been a great pleasure to know him and I pray his final days are full and loving. God Bless you James

Zeitgeist Moving Forward

Wow. I just watched Zeitgeist Moving Forward. Very thought provoking and helped put the pieces together. What do you think? Or can we really think any more. can we think outside of the constant barrage of marketing and hype to clearly see where we are really going? I am starting to think my brother in law is right.

Hum....

Structural violence is the cause of behavioural violence. So what is structural violence.

The Christmas Story

My version of the Christmas story.

Judah = Praise
Bethlehem = House of Bread
Jesus = The Bread of Life
Manger = Feeding Trough

So in the land of Praise from the House of Bread the Bread of Life was offered up in a common trough to all who hungered the that missing piece we all seek.

'I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.'

John 10:10
