Recently, I rented a compact economy car in Atlanta and the agent said, “Sorry. We don’t have the car you requested. I hope this will do” — and handed me the keys to this American Beauty. I felt a little guilty about the carbon foot-print I’d be leaving until I fired it up and heard (and felt!) the lion roar. After which, it was game-on and just fun. Pure fun. I am thinking it could be a nice option for this year’s tour van. What do you think?
“The man who respects himself is authentic. He cannot compromise: he would prefer to die but stick to his truth. And that is the price God asks for. Risk all that you have — because you don’t have anything, you only think you have. In reality, you are a nothingness.
‘STRIVE TO PASS FROM NOTHINGNESS TO BEING,
AND MAKE YOURSELF DRUNK WITH THE WINE OF GOD.’
“Be open, and God starts pouring into you like wine from every nook and corner of existence. Then wherever you look, you find God. Then whatsoever you touch, you find God. Then whatsoever you drink and eat, you find God. And when God pours from everywhere, then life is a celebration.”
