No More

Dear Oscar

A friend shared this quote with me the other day. I found it very uplifting and hope that you do too.

“It is a glorious destiny to be a member of the human race, though it is a race dedicated to many absurdities and one which makes terrible mistakes: yet, with all that, God Himself glorified in becoming a member of the human race. A member of the human race! To think that such a commonplace realisation should suddenly seem like news that one holds the winning ticket in a cosmic sweepstake. There is no way of telling people that they are all walking around shining like the sun… There are no strangers… If only we could see each other as we really are all the time. There would be no more war, no more hatred, no more cruelty, no more greed… I suppose the big problem would be that we would fall down and worship each other… The gate of heaven is everywhere.”
~ Thomas Merton

Keep strong,
love Sally (UK)
