This little identity-theft-got-skype-hacked-maybe-all-my-accounts-have-been-compromised blip in my life…

I am tired.
I am teacher-on-Friday tired.
I am Dad-is-99-and-on-hospice tired.
I am a-loved-one-has-died tired.
And you think I have energy
and time to worry about THIS
little identity-theft-got-skype-hacked-
compromised blip in my life?!

“Identity theft” can’t steal my real identity,
and dishonesty can’t destroy what’s true.
Lies can’t destroy what really matters –
the beauty in the world, and Love’s
love for me and you.

I have reached that place in my life
where I no longer can find the time
to worry about all the possible things
that may happen – I’ve found
all that’s really real is fine.

– Karen Molenaar Terrell

so tired

“The divine Mind maintains all identities, from a blade of grass to a star, as distinct and eternal… Evil has no reality. It is neither person, place, nor thing, but is simply a belief, an illusion of material sense. The identity, or idea, of all reality continues forever…”

“Error is false, mortal belief; it is illusion, without spiritual identity or foundation, and it has no real existence.”

“We admit that black is not a color, because it reflects no light. So evil should be denied identity or power, because it has none of the divine hues.”

“God is the Life, or intelligence, which forms and preserves the individuality and identity of animals as well as of men.”
