Sunday Meditations

“Long Road Out of Eden”

Weaving down the American highway
Through the litter and the wreckage and the cultural junk
Bloated with entitlement; loaded on propaganda
And now we’re driving dazed and drunk

Been down the road to Damascus, the road to Mandalay
Met the ghost of Caesar on the Appian Way
He said, “It’s hard to stop this bingeing, once you get a taste.
But the road to empire is a bloody, stupid waste.”

Behold the apple—the power of the tools
But all the knowledge in the world is of no use to fools

And it’s long road out of Eden…

–Don Henley, Glenn Frey, & Timothy B. Schmit (The Eagles)

Let the Beauty we love be what we do. There are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

–Rumi (1207-1273)

If the only prayer
you say in your entire life
is “Thank You”
that would suffice.

–Meister Eckhart (1260-1329)
