We are living out Orwell’s 1984, where our lying pig of a president tells us not to believe what we see and what we hear. We are daily bombarded with more half-truths and outright lies as he attempts to prop up his base and stay in control.
But in Gandhi’s words, “the truth is still the truth.” Never be afraid to speak out. Never be afraid to say the Emperor has no clothes. If we refuse to speak out the lying liar wins. Speak out. The truth is still the truth.
There is a power in simplicity. Living more simply not only honors our home, it demonstrates that we care for others and know the necessity and the joy of sharing the world’s finite resources. At its heart, living more simply is deeply spiritual.
Poverty exists because we lack community. There is no true sense of all being part of one family serving and caring for one another. Those of us with more of the world’s resources than we need refuse to share the life-saving necessities with brothers and sisters who are daily dying for their lack of what we waste.
I have posted this quote in the distant past, but sometimes we all just need a little reminder. God created our world perfectly. That means there is truly enough for all. The secret is sharing instead of hoarding…and yes, it really is that simple.
