contemplate that, i will...

(...said yoda)
The contemplative life is about becoming more contemplative all the time. It is about being in the world differently. What needs to be changed in us? Anything that deludes us into thinking that we are not simply a work in progress, all of whose degrees, status, achievements, and power are no substitute for the wisdom that a world full of God everywhere, in everyone, has to teach us.

Boy, do I wish I could remember this 24 hours a day, every single day. I got slammed pretty hard last week, then again this week. Might have saved myself a lot of grief if I had looked at the situation as wisdom of god, teaching, showing me what I most need to know.

Taking the lesson to heart now. Once again, Wanda, I thank you.
