Life is somewhat paradoxical isn’t it? On the one hand – each one of us has a particular journey or road to travel in life. On the other hand – none of us is truly alone!
In the most obvious sense, we are not truly alone because we have our friends and families. There are people we can talk with and share our stories, our fears, our triumphs.
In a less obvious way, we are not truly alone because we carry within us, way down deep inside, at the level of our DNA – all of our ancestors. Their passions, their strengths and weaknesses, their loves and hates are an important part of who we are. Wherever we go, we take them with us.
This blog is an invitation for you to reflect on the wisdom that we have inherited from our ancestors. That wisdom can be found in many sources – the Jewish and Christian scriptures, other ancient writings like Pirke Avot and that of the Fathers of the Church, the writings of saints and sages over the centuries.
Every week I will post some short saying that I believe deserves some reflection. I will add some comments and stories and I invite you to add some as well. Check back often to follow the discussion.
