Actions are Forever

“What we do in this life echos in eternity.”
— Maximus Decimus Meridius


To say that life ends at death is far too simple a climax for the story that is our lives. There is more than biology at work inside us.

In the Hebrew scriptures, it's said that God himself wrote eternity on our hearts. Deep down, we sense it. Our lives are leading up to something. Our Choices, public and private, count, not only for this life, but in the one to come. Actions, in that sense, are forever.



Render Your Sword

“Make me a captive, Lord,
And then I shall be free;
Force me to render up my sword,
And I shall conqueror be.”
— George Matheson

So much of life is letting go, surrendering, falling to one’s knees and crying out, "I give up, Lord!"

This prayer should never be far from our lips. We must continually be losing bits of our life; only then, will the path open up before us.

Don't fight the paradox, embrace it.
