Stop Talking to Yourself

Stop talking to yourself. And

Stop talking to others

Who cannot stop

Talking about themselves.


These are the gods of

Your own self-making that

Demand you worship them

Instead of the one, true God.


While there is no doubt that...


Self-awareness is vital.

Self-respect is necessary.

Self-care preserves the life

Each was given by God.


There comes a point...


When self-talk becomes

Quite plainly, self-love.

And group-talk becomes

Quite plainly, group-love.


This is narcissism and

Fundamentalism

On display in the mirror and

In the public square.


Sad and

Sickening.

Destructive and

Deadening.


The point of life is

Much more than that.

The point of faith must be

So much more than that.


If it isn't and

If it's not

Then we're all doomed

To become like those who...


Put other gods before God.

A truly damnable thing.

But it doesn't have to come to that

Because there is another way.


Enter into God.

Through sacrament.

Through prayer.

Through sacrifice.


But none of that will truly take root...


Unless you learn to listen to the

Sound of sheer silence (1 Kings 19:12) and

Choose to enter the

Cloud that will overshadow you (Luke 1:35).


Then your soul will magnify the Lord (Luke 1:46).
