The Secret

The secret, while obvious, remains secret:  everything necessary for the human being to survive and flourish has been already given to us, from the beginning.  Everything beyond this gift amounts to luxury, it is unnecessary, superfluous, and destined to be destroyed and uprooted in the course of time.  The problem today is that in our heedless pursuit of luxury upon luxury we have put aside and neglected what is our essential: the communion of friends, bread and wine, and perhaps a good story told around a campfire.
