Knock Knock... Who's There?

Reality, that's who. So friends and family - I'm about half way through my service here at the Bahá’í World Centre (I know - crazy, huh?!?). So yeah, that means that it's time to start thinking about my not-so-distant future.... Sigh.

Most of the time, when I think about the current state of world affairs I realize that it is simply the disintegration of an old world order - a disintegration that, though painful, is necessary in order for the birth of the New World Order: the Promised Day of God. I'm also mostly capable of thinking that it's better to have this disintegration now, so that instead paying forward the pain and calamity we're currently embroiled in, we truly can begin to lay the ground work for peace. Peace our children can grow and develop in.
But sometimes the really selfish part of me is like, "but DUDE! what am I going to do?!?" I'm trying to educate that selfish person....

ps. I found this picture here - pretty hilarious site, actually.

Good that you're thinking about it now. :-) It is harder when you get home!
