    dotsSpoiler Alert!dots

    For those of you who haven't seen the latest Terrence Malick film:

    Let me save you two and a half hours!

    watch an eposode of Nova,
    take a walk in the woods,
    touch some grass that is swaying in the wind
    go for a swim, but always take a buddy
    read some passages from the book of Job

    and remember:

    that bad things happen to good people
    ergo, you are not bad just because you suffer

    that God is love

    that your flesh is not eternal
    but love is

    that we can seek comfort in that which is eternal

    that dinosaurs existed but that doesn't mean God doesn't

    that little boys have unsavory thoughts about their moms and dads

    that women should stand up more
    and men should stand down most of the time
    but really there is no "should"

    that we are the soul of the earth
    that we are all connected
    that nobody knows what happens when we die

    that faith brings us comfort
    and hope brings us faith

    that empathy is part of connection

    that the world is wondrous

    that we mean nothing but feel everything

    that either all of it or none of it matters

    but either way, we should still be in awe!

    P.S. There is no way to "save" time.

    Maybe you should see the movie. I know less than Him.

      I have enjoyed everything on your list so far , plus a few you didn't request of me , but this kind of left me cold . It was too much like the banter my mom used to hand me while she was folding the laundry to be entertaining . Not that I don't agree with a lot of it , I just found it a little bit too instructional and not enlightening enough .

      might change the last line to "I know less than He"

    but all that this poem expresses is so true...and yes there never should be "should."

    as soon as someone tells me i need to something or should do something, my thoughts fly to the opposite of what they tell me...'
    we figure out what brings us comfort..what will make us be able to live with ourselves...be content...

    others can't tell us what was, what is or what will be...we have to figure that out for ourselves..

    and i am glad that both God and the dinosaurs existed...

    i like the line about boys having unsavory thoughts about their moms and dads...

    it's like "let's not go there" lol

    and love is eternal...our flesh won't last more than this lifetime and our possessions won't be luggage for the plane ride to the afterlife...we can't take it with us...but if we die with love in our hearts, most likely others will remember us with the same love.
