Our purpose in a troubled world

The world has been going to hell in a handbasket for a very long time, I read in the Austin paper over 30 years ago. The speaker was a veteran of World War II. He meant that we can get through whatever’s troubling us. But how?

I think it’s important when faced with terrible events not to forget our purpose. I won’t share mine here and I know what it is. I know what it is because I ask myself four questions every morning before I get out of bed. I learned them by listening to Deepak Chopra on a podcast. He said that it’s not important to know the answers right away. He also said that if you don’t want to do all of them, the most important one is the last one.

  1. Who am I?
  2. What do I want?
  3. What is my purpose?
  4. What am I grateful for?

What bad actors want is for the rest of us to be so freaked out and afraid that we forget why we’re here, what we can do and how powerful we are. I don’t know the answers to the problems in this particular handbasket, but I know my purpose.

Everytime I see Ramona I write a blog post
