Trading Fulfillment for Predictability - 8sep21
What was Luke Skywalker’s reaction
to Obi Wan Kenobi’s unexpected invitation
to journey with him to Alderaan
and learn the ways of the Force (in Star Wars: a New Hope)?
Did he exclaim “Hell yeah!”
or did he whine “Alderaan? I’m not going to Alderaan,
I’ve gotta get home, it’s late, I’m in for it as it is!”?
Are we any better?
When life offers us a fulfilling adventure,
how often have we enthusiastically opted
for: something else, something safe, something predictable;
even if it is boring, and dismal, and soul sucking?
May our hearts
fill with the courage
of the heroes and heroines of legend!
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
