NIBBLING OUR WAY TO LOSTNESS

A cow is nibbling on a tuft of grass in the middle of a field, moving from one tuft to the next, and before you  know it he ends up at some grass next to the fence.  Noticing a nice clump of green on the other side of the fence, the cow stumbles through an old tear in the fence and finds himself outside on the road.  “Cows don’t intend to get lost,” the farmer explained, “they just nibble their way to lostness!”

PONDER AND CONSIDER
Oh, the dangers of living a life without intent.  How often do we nibble our way far from Life’s source, only to find ourselves in the middle of a busy road?  How often do we find that old tear in the fence?  How often does one little action begin a cascade that changes our lives in ways we never could have imagined?

I'm a Jesuit from Malta, an artist at heart and madly in love with all things beautiful and soulful: music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, theatre, poetry, good company, good food, good wine and more. I believe that beauty is a wonderful entry into the mystery of the God “whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” God can be sensed in all things if and when we engage in a long, loving look at the real that surrounds us. I consider myself a seeker with bottomless curiosity, an eternal student of life, exploring fresh and creative ways to proclaim the Good News in the hope of helping fellow pilgrims and seekers to embrace real and radical changes that will lead to conversion and transformation.
