PONDER on THIS for Friday, February 27th, 2009 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“People are often consumed, or driven, by a goal, destination, or an outcome. This is the proverbial finish line many are trying to reach. Unfortunately, when life becomes centered on a destination, thing, or an accomplishment, it ceases to be life – at least in any meaningful sense. We are often so focused on a particular outcome that we are blinded to all else – especially repercussions of that outcome. A small child focuses on bouncing a ball off the outside of a house to the exclusion of any thoughts of a broken window, or any consequences that may follow, for instance.

Likewise, scientists strive to complete a project that will produce a new weapon, or some other potentially lethal device, with little thought given to the day after their project is complete. They focus on a “successful” outcome, or on an arbitrary completion date, but spend little time considering life on a planet where such horrible devices exist!”
