Can you recollect the Toilet roll saga?
Every mall worth the name in the city showed a sad picture of empty shelves.
Thanks to some fake news in the social media, courtesy coronavirus!
We never felt ashamed of becoming hoarders.
“Hoard food and it rots. Hoard money and you rot. Hoard power and the nation rots.”
Instead of helping the needy, we became extremely selfish.
We threw all our values into the dust bin.
Is there misuse of the phrase ‘Survival of the fittest’?
Then why we complain about the shortage of essentials?
We all need spiritual guidance
“Food for the hungry cannot come from empty shelves.
Money to assist the needy cannot come from an empty purse.
Support and understanding cannot come from the emotionally starved.
Teaching cannot come from the unlearned.
And most important of all, spiritual guidance cannot come from the spiritually weak”
Marion G Romney
Is possessing more better or possessing less?
My friend the answer is neither.
Read this quote
“The more we possess, the emptier we become. And in such a life-destroying dynamic, the solution is not to possess less. Rather, it’s to realize that we ourselves are a possession. And in surrendering ourselves to the God who desires to possess the whole of us, there is then no shred of emptiness left within us.” Craig D. Lounsbrough
