irrelvantHow important is the irrelevant?

Crazy question?

First… one has to know what is important.

The older we get the wiser we supposedly get… hmm…

But who determines what is wise? If it were left to us we can be sure some of our beliefs were backasswords. And Mr. Murphy will hopefully set us straight.

The political discourse these days… if you want to dignify it as such is disgusting. No more respect for any institution or person. Manners out the window. What is relevant is mocked. Hoods are worn to hide identity. Shame on them. Cowards to their belief.

Life is a journey to find the relevant. To find what you can believe in. To find Truth that transcends folly. From poverty to wealth, from pain to joy, from aloneness to family. There is ultimately just one destination that most spend their lives trying to avoid.

Deep in your heart lies the Truth. It is an onion to be peeled. You are an onion to be peeled. Eyes will water as real tears roll down your real cheeks.

Smiles will become genuine. Evil will be immediately recognized and attacked. Armies of good and compassion will fight as nobly as they can to protect what is relevant.

What is relevant is one man. Each of us. And… one born in a manger.
