Word for today
The Gospel of John 6:22-29

Do not stop

When you're right, do not stop searching.
When you're wrong, do not stop searching.
When you're healthy, do not stop searching.
When you're ill, do not stop searching.
When you have arrived, do not stop searching.
If you feel lost, do not stop searching.
If you believe, do not stop searching.
If you don't believe, do not stop searching.
When you're at peace, do not stop searching.
When you are persecuted, do not stop searching.
When everyone is looking for you, do not stop searching.
When everyone has had enough of you, do not stop searching.
When you have found your way, do not stop searching.
When there is no way, do not stop searching.
If you're loved, do not stop searching.
If you're alone, do not stop searching.
Like it or not, in every moment of your life, in every occasion, you will have to keep busy to get food, food for you, for your body, for your heart, for your mind, for your safety, for your benefit, for your pleasure, needs, expectations, prejudices, ambitions, wishes, convictions. There is a nourishment, there are certain things, realities, energies, foods that do not last, they are not metabolized, and they do not appease our hunger. Likewise there is a food, there are realities and energies that last, they are metabolized and are capable of providing happiness, peace, harmony, light and strength. You will always in any case need to keep busy, like it or not. Keeping busy for a lifetime searching for what does not last may not turn out to be advantageous; keeping busy for a lifetime searching for what will last could turn out to be eternally propitious. In any case, do not stop searching.
