Wisdom to wisdom.

My post-cold blagh (that’s a technical term) is such that I can think of doing nothing other than curling up on the lounge and watching several episodes of Firefly (I love Joss Whedon!). I am certainly too blagh to come up with something intelligent on my own, so once more I am relying on the wisdom of Thomas Merton. It is at least thematically linked to some of the things I’ve been writing about…:

“Finally I am coming to the conclusion that my highest ambition is to be what I already am. That I will never fulfil my obligation to surpass myself unless I first accept myself, and if I accept myself fully in the right way I will already have surpassed myself”.

So that was the brilliance of Thomas Merton. Now to the brilliance of Joss Whedon.
