Serendipity

Happiness kanjiAs Friday’s events launched a new and uncertain era in our country and the world, I was struck by the seredipity of the January 20 entry from 365 Tao: Daily Meditations by Deng Ming-Dao, a book that has offered me daily insights for many years. Here is the entry.

HAPPINESS:  Let us not follow vulgar leaders who exploit the fear of death, and promise the bliss of salvation. If we are truly happy, they will have nothing to offer. . . . If we attain freedom from the fear of death, a sound way of health, and a path of understanding through life, there is happiness and no need for false leaders.

 

And this from Carl Sagan, On Moving Beyond Us And Them, written shortly before his death.  From the wonderful Brain Pickings Newsletter.
