I write a lot about silence, solitude, peace, tranquility in the midst of chaos and God. I write about these things because they are important to me. They are important to me because I believe it is all-too-easy for us to lose ourselves in the constant hurry of twenty-first century life and in the constant struggle to “be somebody”, we become nobody.
We lose ourselves.
We lose ourselves and give ourselves over to the Trinity of Twenty-First Century False Idols:
When taken together, as all things of a triune nature must be, the three great false idols of the twenty-first century form the godhead of an even more malign being:
The Great Oversoul of Acute Stress and Anxiety
This creature, I believe, is the great enemy of the Soul. It has no definite form or shape, yet it seems to be always present in the hustle and bustle of twenty-first century life.
I implore you to take a moment to slow down, to do nothing for a while, to rest your weary hands and eyes from the work you do, whatever it may be, and do combat with the great enemy of the Soul, dispel these methamphetamine-driven idols and revive yourself.
After all, if the Soul dies, the work means nothing.
If we lose ourselves, who will tell us who we are?
Peace be with you.
