March Reflections

Given April is almost half way through, I thought I’d better get my act together to review March.  It was a time of disciplined eating as I did the Whole30 diet the beginning of concert season…two.  :).  We entered in spring and remembered the sacrifice Jesus made for us.

Beyond that [caring], it involves virtues like generosity and the deliberate cultivation of empathy, without which it is impossible even to conceive of how to love my neighbor as myself.”                                                                                     – Iain Provan

“True and sound wisdom consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and ourselves.”   — Calvin, Institutes

The following three quotes are from Creatures of the Day: And Other Tales of Psychotherapy by Irvin Yalom

“…anticipating endings may encourage us to grasp the present with greater vitality.” (p.29)

“I know my existence is drawing to a close, but the end has been there since the beginning.  What is different now is that I treasure the pleasures of sheer awareness.” (p. 48)

“Embarrassment is never a solitary event.  It always requires at least one other person — in this case, me.  I think it emanates from your expectation of how I’d receive your disclosure and how I’d feel about you.” (p. 67)
