I picked up the February Readers Digest today and in Points to Ponder I found four points to ponder. You can read them below
The goal is not to live in a color blind world; I don’t want to not be an African. The goal is to live in a world where my race doesn’t limit my access.
Hardship can turn out to be a great blessing, and disasters sometimes remembered more fondly than weddings or tropical vacations. Humans don’t mind duress; in fact they thrive on it. What they mind is not feeling necessary.
The purpose of science in understanding who we are as humans is not to rob us of our sense of mystery. The purpose of science is to constantly reinvent and reinvigorate that mystery.
I remember somebody telling me they had been to Africa and they were asking the local tribe about their spirituality. The tribesman couldn’t make sense of the word. And so the visitor kept trying to explain what they meant by spirituality, and finally the man said, ”Oh, we call that life.”
Ponder as you wish.
