“In the borders of our lives”

Plato, Socrates, and Kierkegaard tried to teach and encourage calm and serene thought, considerate and conscious human conversations, generosity of the spirit, the benefit of the doubt, reticence to judge, careful to speak, considered values, and prudent acts as essential pathways to find and understand, often provisionally, the truth because the truth is never a static reality isolated in the past of our communal or individual lives.

How much longer can the teachings of Christ be reduced to a dualistic polarization of conflict with human experience? Is Christ to be nothing, nothing at all, but a battering ram aimed at ordinary people, and their experiences of being human?

What will history say about the children of the greatest generation? Will we be the worst generation?

The way some of us are acting, you would think that we will never die and that our legacy is assured by our greatness, that we are almost gods, and that our time is the only time, our truth the only truth.

Are the words of Simon & Garfunkel true?

“And how the room is softly faded And I only kiss your shadow, I cannot feel your hand You’re a stranger now unto me

Lost in the dangling conversation And the superficial sighs In the borders of our lives”
