My Message is Simple
I have seen a beautiful expression –
My religion is very simple. My religion is Kindness.
I LOVE that statement! And I agree completely. As far as religion goes, I don’t think it needs to get any more complicated than that.
Unfortunately, I also believe that even an idealize religion of kindness could never be enough to save us from ourselves. But that is a topic for another day.
Today, I’ll keep it short. You will find no footnotes.

The Daily Stone
- “Soooo…are you asking us to UNSUBSCRIBE to you?!”
What I am really asking is that you UNSUBSCRIBE TO EVERYTHING! At least, anything that is “great.” UNSUBSCRIBE From Oprah, the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, Congress, POTUS, the World Economic Forum, Joe Rogan, MTV, Satellite Radio, CNN, Fox News, Martha Stewart, Late Night Television, Taylor Swift, all of it. Even the radio. And most certainly the “News.”
UNSUBSCRIBE from all the voices beamed at you from the Hive Mind of global “civilization.” UBSUBSCRIBE to “greatness;” it offers little to nothing of value for humans. All the voices you need to hear to live a fulfilling life are right around you, accessible free of subscription fees, and without even trying to sell you something. You just need to find them, and substitute them for all the baying voices of “greatness.”
I hope to represent the sort of voice I encourage you to tune into – the small voice of a friend who humbly offers his observations and creations, who can connect meaningfully with you and anyone else who chooses to participate in this experiment.
BUT! At whatever point you have unsubscribed from all the “greatness,” then you already get it! You have no need of the message I offer. This is a preachy variety act after all, and I am a messenger first and foremost. I’m not looking to collect a following of people, particularly those who have already gotten the message. But maybe you get something of value from the connection, or enjoy my creative offerings. I know I value the connection, and I celebrate your creative offerings. So if this is meaningful to you, stay. I just ask that you try to consider the message. ↩︎
