For Illustration Friday: Repair
What needs fixing...the house or the handyman?
I hate fixing things. If I had my way everything would be brand new and remain eternally pristine. But that is not the way of nature. Everything is under the rule that things fall apart. Whether through use or disuse, all that exists wears out, breaks down, rusts, or collects dust.
Only the intangibles do not follow this rule. The Mind, The Spirit, Love, Hope...things like that. These always grow stronger and better with use. There is no friction to wear out Love by using it. The Spirit grows in wisdom and light by it's expression. Hope only multiplies as it is realized. The Mind grows sharper by it's exercise. There are no how-to manuals or "This Old House's" for the things of the soul. Just the ability to be and do. And for me, there's a lot of doing still to do.
Now... where'd I put that hammer?
