We lie to ourselves because we’re afraid to take ourselves on.

“Deep down inside every one of us knows something’s twisted. Acknowledging that fact, refusing to run away from it and deciding to deal with it is the beginning of the only authentic life there is.

All evil begins with a lie. The biggest evil comes from the biggest lies, and the biggest lies are the ones we tell ourselves. And we lie to ourselves because we’re afraid to take ourselves on.“     – from “Brother John” by August Turak

Tech Tuesday – Great stuff for the busy executive. Waze, a superior navigation app

wazeI tested Waze out on the way home from Mass at a church I don’t normally attend.  I was familiar with the area but Waze told me to turn right…. right into a residential neighborhood instead of going down the main road.

It was not a peaceful place and nothing like the scene I imagined the day that Christ was born. All the holy sites in Israel are like that to some degree ...
