How will we live tomorrow?

“We live as if today is our very last day. We look forward to the inevitable, which is not death but eternal life. When Jesus was on earth he spoke of only two things: His Father and His Kingdom. On earth there are only two kingdoms: light and eternal darkness. They are in eternal conflict. One is motivated by love, the other by fear. If you’re operating from fear, you know where you are. It all goes back to the two trees: the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If things are complicated, it is because you are operating under the tree of the knowledge of good an evil.”

Michael Bushilla, Prayer Minister, Cottage Gove, MN

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
