Yes. This is the only life you’ll ever have. Listen to this message, and enjoy and cherish your wonderful existence in the Cosmos, which is “all that is or ever was or ever will be”.

I choose to offer the gift of kindness to those around me…

One year ago today, I was preparing to lead an Ash Wednesday service at my church. Today, one year later, I realize that we are not dust but instead… stardust. The answers to humanity’s problems are not found in self-depreciation to a deity, but in our ability to see the interconnectedness we possess as we reach out to help our fellow human. Instead of placing ashes on someone’s forehead today, I choose to offer the gift of kindness to those around me. Not for a reward that exists in another place after I die, but in the here and now in this life.
