Faith, politics, technology, photography, terrible puns and whatever else falls out of the hole in my head, all right here for you to see in all its glory. My state of mind is illegal in 28 states and half of Canada. The anal half. I'm probably lying and too bad if you can't figure out when. You must have Sense of Humor 2.2 or greater installed. Yay? Yay. Here we go...

Merton on Not Accepting God's Will
This is from Thomas Merton's New Seeds of Contemplation which I'm re-reading more carefully this time around:
'Not to accept and love and do God’s will is to refuse the fullness of my existence.'
'If I never become what I am meant to be, but always remain what I am not, I shall spend eternity contradicting myself by being at once something and nothing, a life that wants to live and is dead, a death that wants to be dead and cannot quite achieve its own death because it still has to exist.'
I wonder how many of us have felt this way and never understood why.
