The End of the World

I am so glad you are here. I have been thinking about you all week.

I have been trying to visualize what it is like for me to stand here

and look at your faces. I want each and every one of you to know how

much I respect you - and appreciate you. I appreciate not only you but

also the fact that you trust me with yourself and your time. I am

grateful that all of us get to use this time and place as one of the

ways we work out our lives in our attempt to find meaning and guidance

for our lives.

Some years ago I came up with a line I began to use for myself and

then for those who sought me out as a teacher. The line is this: our

purpose in life is to be involved in the process of becoming centers of

freedom and love. This is something that no matter what else is going

on in our lives we can work on.
