Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “A Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemmingway.
Today I pray, “Dear God, What is up with e-transactions? Something must evolve from all of this. Where do we go from this faulty-vault landscape of electronic monetary transactions? Whether it is gold, silver, water, seeds, bills, coins, or something else, the currency is being transacted electronically. This is an e-missing-the-mark. When will financial crimes be a thing of the past? Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:
“No, that is the great fallacy: the wisdom of old men. They do not grow wise. They grow careful.”
There are some “old men” holding on to this root. It is time to clean it up. Tubman is a good name. “Clean up the mistakes of men from the past,” she whispers. Because the Internet is becoming its own time/space reality, something to remember in the midsts of worlds, plural, is that the energy is EVERYWHERE.
We no longer have the luxury of indifference. That is an ancient history now. We are one. Children show us our human importance, as grown-into-wisdom as we need to be. And I do not know a single child — my three-year-old nephew being my inspiration — to be exploiting, trafficking, defrauding, hacking, or perpetrating an electronic or financial world in any capacity. “Let the little children come unto me.”
