Beware the Quagmire of Minutia - 12sep21
“Could ‘prattling on’ include
unskillful use of social media?”
she intelligently asked.
“It could,” I responded,
“but in our good hearted enthusiasm
to work out all the practical applications
of spiritual principles
we could find ourselves
stuck in analysis
as if in a quagmire.
Like Luke Skywalker’s X-wing
sinking into Yoda’s swamp on Dagobah.
Much better it could be to practice
mindfulness and meditation in such a way
as to nurture the centered spontaneity
through which the best
choices, utterances and deeds
through a garden hose
on a hot summer’s morn.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
