The Greatest Trick

It’s the greatest trick ever pulled

All these things that we think are important

Making us think they’re important.

I need your attention NOW

Or the delicately balanced infrastructure of your delicately ordered life will tip, one domino at a time.

Bills, emails, insurance, oil change – somehow “necessary” in this life.  Sure, they’re part of the building material.  But they’re not the whole house.

And there’s the trick.  They make you think they’re the whole house.  They pile, demand, harass, obscure.  They insist that they are bigger, more vital, more necessary than…

Listening to your Father.

Loving others.

Living your purpose.

Oh, the deception of a busy life.  Oh, the great wool that’s been pulled over our eyes.
