more 1-min nonsense, pg 101

It baffled the disciples to hear the Master say that evil, when viewed from a higher perspective, is good, that sin is a doorway to grace.

So he told them the story of Carthage, a thorn in the flesh of Ancient Rome. When Rome finally razed Carthage to the ground she found rest, grew flabby, and decayed.

“If all evil were to disappear,” concluded the Master, “the human spirit would rot.”

From More One Minute Nonsense by Anthony de Mello.

ma'habocath knows some, tells much. ma'habocath knows few things others do. This one is a live-alone, full-time burger-flipper with an odd mind and too much to say. ma'hab always tries the best ma'hab can to keep up: • Chores • Bodybuilding and other health-nuttery • Japanese language studies • Culinary experimentation (see “other health-nuttery”) • Exploration of newfound spiritual territory • Exploration of my Self • Figuring out how to socialize well enough, mostly face-to-face • Backlogs: books, heavy metal, anime • Blogging, chatting, texting, and talking to whomever will listen about all of the above
