Once upon a time there was a gentleman who led a very programmed life. He planned for every eventuality with utter care. He made sure  to always have a  plan B, just in case.

Every night before going to bed he placed on his night stand two glasses: one with water and one empty. When his visiting friend asked him “why?” he said:

“The one with water is there in case I wake up at night and I feel thirsty”.

Still not getting the point, the curious friend asked: “How about the other one?”

“Oh! This is in case I wake up at night and I am not thirsty!”  the gentleman replied.

Is your life so meticulously planned and programmed that it borders on the absurd?

Author: philipchircop

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.
