Everything breathes, but not everything lives.
It’s not a matter of age, of nationality, of wealth, or of religion. People everywhere are searching for the formula to life— the perfect blend of belief, action, and maybe even God, to guarantee success and prevent failure. We are constantly seeking to understand why this happened and why that didn’t happen and what we need to do to make sure this happens and that doesn’t happen in the future because . . .
if . . . then . . .
All of this searching is not only frustrating and exhausting, but perpetually frustrating and exhausting. The world doesn’t seem to work with the formulas. And neither does God, it seems. It’s time to stop.
Breathe. Look. Live. There and then are here and now.
This changes everything.
