Our Topsy Turvy World

This world tells us the path to success is lined with signs like… Be bigger. Try harder. Do more. And you may have tried it.

But where has it all led you? That path is nothing more than a treadmill that wears out our hearts and leads us nowhere. Someone has aptly said: ”We are all in a rat race. But at the end of the race, we are still a rat!”

As we come to the end of another year,is there an emptiness within you? Deep regret?Lurking wounds that will not heal?   Do we let them eat into us? Or are we satisfied with the way we have lived out our lives? Served others? Fulfilled our responsibilities? Let us begin to think of the changes we need to makein our lifestyle and relationships in the New Year!

Here is aheart-stirring poem that depicts the predicaments of our age so graphically.

We have taller buildings but shorter tempers.

We spend more but have less.
We buy more but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families.
More conveniences but lesstime.
We have more degrees but less sense.
More knowledge but less judgment.
More educationbut less truth.
More experts but fewer solutions.
More medicinebut less wellness.
We have world peace but domestic violence;
More leisure and less fun;
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce,
Fancier houses but broken homes.

Yes, these aretimes when thereis much to show in the window, but nothing in the stockroom!

But what is woven into the lives of others.”  —Pericles
