Life can be difficult. It has been said that God puts the solution alongside the problem. Does this really mean that we make life harder for ourselves than it need be?
Our usual reaction to life is one of maintaining our own importance and our own secure place in society. So too, we complicate our lives more and more with material possessions. Thirdly the noise from the world and our own incessant inner chatter distract us from a deeper listening.
This all calls for some well-practised virtues, but they must come from the heart, where Love resides.
At this point I ask myself, “Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?”
