More conscious choices

As said before, the period of the pandemic can become a moment of reflection, where we come to know who we are and what we are our most important values. The challenge is, can we mindfully commit to living the rest of our lives from this place of truth?

Society … was regarded (by the Desert Fathers) as the shipwreck from which each single individual man had to swim for his life … These were men who believed that to let oneself drift along, passively accepting the tenets and values of what they knew as society, was purely and simply a disaster.

Henri Nouwen, The Way of the Heart
