What if humankind is alone in the universe with nothing but our own courage and ingenuity to see us through?
To the ego, this sounds like a dream.
Like an encouraging notion.
It seems to be our collective ethos at the moment.
No wonder so many of us are exploding like spent comets in recent years. What a heavy yoke to be burdened with such self-centeredness and grandiosity.
Turn us to you, oh gracious God.
Extract our trust in our egoic ambitions
and put our self-centeredness to death
so that we may surrender into you, our only Source
and be made anew.
