Thought this was an interesting sign someone had in their office.
PURGE the things that no longer bring PURPOSE!
Yikes! I wonder who or what got purged from this person’s life recently.
Yet, perhaps it is a good lesson against hoarding and just accumulating junk (things and certain people) along the way of life.
When things have a deeply negative impact on your life (or they’re just dead weight), perhaps it is time to consider letting go.
I’m not talking about relationships of commitment (e.g. family), which have a stronger and timeless bond in my mind, but of those that earn their right into your life by virtue of being ongoing positive, productive forces.
There is no blessing in gluttony or hoarding–stay trim and fit, travel light and with what is truly meaningful and necessary. 😉
I took this photo a while back on the Metro to/from Washington, D.C.
It combines the seemingly normal person on the way to/from work listening to music and reading the newspaper with wearing a pretty scare face mask.
It reminds me of the horror movie, “The Purge,” where people are permitted one night a year to commit crimes and murder others “legally” as a venting mechanism for social unrest and to help eliminate crime and criminals.
Sitting across from this guy, you’re not really sure if he’s gonna finish reading the paper and walk off the train all nice or get up and start wiping people out left and right.
Big cities in the U.S. can be scary places, and the mass transportation systems are one of those places where you don’t always feel safe.
Maybe a mask is just a mask until G-d forbid, one day, it isn’t.
