Wisdom Break

Let's take a break from worrying about storms, how the World Series turned out, the possibility of Mitt Romney being elected president. Let's take a wisdom break. My friend Montag over at his always-erudite blog once in a while hits the true heights. He did with these words a few days ago. I have to share them with you.
How many people today are in prison? How many whose lives are lived in a grim, dank dungeon? How many desperately yearn to escape?

We are imprisoned just as the soul of Jacob Marley was, doomed to drag the chains of our assumptions, belief systems, and world views to our graves.

Contrary to the opinion of many people, we are not best served by striving to create coherent "belief systems", for any coherence we achieve is on the surface; we do not go deeply into the realms of the soul.

Faith is better.
Faith is tougher.(Source)
And all the assembled said "AMEN."
