A Choice Every Sunrise

Life goes on until it ends — and it does end. “What will I do with the time that’s left?” is the central question of a life, isn’t it?

Will I act in fear? Will I be kind? Will I love my neighbor as myself? Will I come and go in peace? Will I give more than I receive?

Or will I be none of these things, lashing out with snark and hate because I’m scared of what’s happening to people, to the world, to me?

The choice is there, every morning — to ride the light out of darkness and live in peace, striving for harmony against the discord.

Love is there to give — Love is giving, not taking — Love is offering, not demanding — Love is a decision, not an emotion.
