    easier to be cynical

    This is a wonderful little book whose aim seems to be to remind us that God is about love and grace and kindness and forgiveness, all of which we run from as though they were curses, rather than gifts. God told Moses, 'I AM WHO I AM,' but most of us are so afraid to examine our lives and truly find out who we are. So we turn from God, from love, and seek answers elsewhere. We listen to diet soda ads or Glamor magazine or Beck or wacko fundamentalists who are sending everyone else to Hell. Hedges lays bare the emptiness of our consumerist greed-based culture. The terror most of us feel in the face of raw, honest emotion is exposed. I don't believe in God but I do believe in the foundations of His Commandments: love, grace, kindness and forgiveness. It's easier to be cynical, to be greedy, to be glib. It's not better, just easier. As a friend of mine says, 'You can stand in the garage all you want. Doesn't make you a car.' We hide from the truth because the truth demands too much in return. I'd suggest two steps. first, read this book. Second, reflect on your 3 o'clock in the morning self. How do you feel about you all alone, in the dark at 3 am? Then be truly brave, truly adventurous and make yourself into a person you can stand to be alone with in the middle of the night.
