Why must we fight for the right to live, over and over, each time the sun rises?

Leon Uris, in Exodus

+ + +

Why?  Because we are human and shun God, preferring ourselves to The Divine and what is the Only Good.

Remember this, you may stay in place and know an exodus.  You see the world and those in it move away from what is good at-large, good in you, The Good. That, friends, is an exodus.  Yes, your culture, your family may well move from you, who you are, what you believe, what is True.

There is suffering in this.  It is an inversion – a loss and then a gain.  You will have your desert time, be enriched in God and then pass through.  Others will have been lost, devoured – destroyed by their own choice.

Shalom.
