"Having a blog is like wandering around your house naked with the windows open; it's all very liberating until someone looks in the window. However, while being caught unawares is one thing, it is quite another to stroll up to the window and press your naked, flabby body against the coolness of the glass in a hideous form of vertical prostration for all the world to see..." These posts are the smudges that are left behind on the window.

Donkeys and Pigs

There's a traditional Sufi saying: A donkey carrying a load of Holy books is still a donkey.

The modern version might be: You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.

The point of the Sufi saying, I believe, is that if there's no evidence that our spirituality has  transformed our outer lives, it's useless.

Let's live like we mean it.
