Ah, lives of men! When prosperous they glitter…
Like a fair picture; when misfortune comes –
A wet sponge at one blow has blurred the painting.
If you’ve ever had to drive when you were tired, exhausted, medicated…
while fighting to keep your eyes open, with both hands on the wheel,
then maybe you can begin to visualize a mental image of the current
state of our Western Civilization.
Drowsy and nodding off at the wheel while on a precarious and treacherous drive.
We’ve lowered the windows so the wind can rouse us,
We’ve turned the radio on and up in order to alert our senses,
We’ve downed energy drinks and copious amounts of caffeine all in hopes of pressing on to our
goal and destination….yet it is to no avail
For our fatigue will overtake us before we can arrive safely…
Such is our journey of naiveté.
Upon reading the following two stories offered and shared by fellow bloggers,
each who happen to be ardent defenders of the faith, I was suddenly struck by that
mental image of Western Civilization being sadly asleep at the wheel.
We are being lead astray by those who work to squeeze The Divine from our existence.
In the name of all things worldly…
or perhaps it should be more like ignorance…
In the pursuit of naming ourselves demigods, we are on a one way drive to our own demise.
For I know my transgressions,
And my sin is ever before me.
