“I cannot think that we are useless or God would not have created us.” – GOYATHLAY (Geronimo) Apache Medicine Man & War Chief 1829-1909.

 

I try to write to the spiritual teachings but today the newspaper blares no headlines of goodness we might bring to our planet. There is terror, pollution, bankruptcy, bottom lines, murder, pandemic.  Good news doesn’t sell papers. I wonder where in the paper to find evidence of usefulness and worth, but all I read is bloodshed and bloodbath.  My thoughts turn away from creation…

And what of evolution?

Are we important or irritant? We erode
the planet in our role as Man the Destroyer.
Even our fellow humans are not safe
from violence, destruction, madness.

I read today that Canadians
are cautious, respectful, bland.
I read today that terrorists only want
to control their own countries.

Yet events tell a different story.
There is no respect for borders.
What control of their own will be found
in France? in Belgium? In New York City?

  1. I’m also finding myself drawn to things that are more serious right now. I really admire how you’ve stuck to this process, no matter how challenging the material has been.
