Each day we all have choices.
Some of us have more choice than others because of the randomness of birth and the systems that govern our society. What will we do with our choices? Are your emotions driving or informing your choices? Do you need more of Mr. Spock’s logic to help you balance your choices?
Yoda tells the wisdom of the cosmos: “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
We’ve seen this happen.
We are seeing this happen.
It may have happened to you.
Which emotion is ordering your life right now and how does that effect how you interact with your neighbors?
Which emotion is ordering your life right now and how does that effect how you interact with the systems that govern our society?
Which emotion is ordering your life right now and how does that effect your discipleship following Jesus? That pesky peasant teacher from Galilee reminds us to love God and our neighbor as ourselves.
That’s always prophetic.
1) If you have not seen the movie, Inside Out (2015), I recommend it. It is family friendly for grades 6 and older which would provide for some discussion about feelings and memory.
2) I suggest Seth Godin’s blog on “Choices” for another perspective.
