Second Sight

  • I looked for light and found only darkness, so I entered the darkness and learned second sight.
  • My friends betrayed me and I betrayed them, so I forgave us all and threw a party!
  • I saw the world going to hell in a hand basket so I jumped into the hand basket, grabbed its handle, and pulled up.
  • I saw children frightened and alone—I saw myself—so I joined their cause.
  • I read the news and was discouraged, so I read further and deeper and learned about Dr. Nott, who removes snipers’ bullets from pregnant Syrian women trying to escape their country.
  • I was told there is no god and prayer is meaningless, and then I found this daily prayer from an atheist religion:

Elderly Dr. RitaMay all beings be peaceful.
May all beings be happy.
May all beings be safe.
May all beings awaken to
the light of their true nature.
May all beings be free.

      1. Ahhhh. Was thinking just this morning that the revealed religions will fade from human experience in a few generations (not before time, may i add) and there’ll be a rebirth of the wisdom religions. The thought made me smile.
