It is useless to utter fervent petitions for that Kingdom to be established and that Will be done, unless we are willing to do something about it ourselves. ... We are agents of the Creative Spirit in this world. Real advance in the spiritual life means accepting this vocation with all it involves.
~ Evelyn Underhill ~
The Spiritual Life (1936)
Today two squirrels ate from my hand at the same time. They took turns--one on each end of the railing, he'd eat his hazelnut then run up to take another from me. Then he'd run back to the end of the rail while the other came to my hand for more.
Two at once! Never thought I'd see that happen.
